TO THE RECORDING OF THE WEBINAR WITHIN 1 - 2 DAYS.
The crises brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic are a recipe for disaster for those already on the margins of U.S. society. The especially brutal impact for Black, Brown, and Indigenous communities is a result of centuries of health and economic inequities, coupled with the current administration’s eugenics policies - Whiteness at its core.
In this SpeakOut Ed Talk webinar, racial justice educator Dr. Jacqueline Battalora explains and examines Whiteness, the dynamic processes and practices linked to relations of domination that position those seen as white above all other people. The assumptions and expectations that Whiteness produces are used to illuminate pathways out of the division and domination it creates.
Dr. Battalora, the author of Birth of a White Nation: The Invention of White People and Its Relevance Today, draws from her Whiteness Competency Course and Kimberle Crenshaw’s Intersectionality framework to help us better understand and strategize how we might achieve true racial justice within our daily work as well as institutional structures and practices.
