Unpacking Anti-Blackness In Thought and Practice
- Event Location Online
Venmo reparations, #BlackLivesMatter yard signs, solidarity statements and black squares. The past few months have been full of everyday people grappling with and fumbling through the long overdue conversation on racism in our country, much of this conversation revolving around “anti-Blackness.” But what does it mean to understand how anti-Blackness works systemically? What does anti-Blackness look like beyond slavery and police brutality and why does it continue to persist? What role does the university play in breaking the cycle of anti-Black ideologies and practices? In the first program of the Anti-Racism Toolkit programming series, we attempt to grapple with these questions and more with scholar-activists shaping the conversation.
