White Anti-Racism

Lunchtime Discussion Series

This lunchtime discussion series on white anti-racism serves as an informal space to discuss and learn about whiteness. The series will explore, in particular, what it means for white people to practice anti-racism. The program follows President Crutcher’s recently released report on Making Excellence Inclusive, which calls for “training and ongoing learning opportunities focused on anti-bias, anti-racism, equity and inclusion for university administration, faculty, staff, and student leaders.”

The lunchtime series is open to any member of the campus community interested in better understanding what whiteness is, its relationship to racism, and implications for being anti-racist. We only ask that all participants keep the discussion centered on whiteness and white anti-racism.

We are happy to be continuing this discussion series into the fall semester. We have restarted discussing the Seeing White podcast series, and are planning to hold meetings every Monday and Thursday at noon. We will send out Spiderbytes with info regarding the specific topic for each session. We look forward to having you join us!
