What is White Supremacy Culture?
Nov 30 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

It is often hard to talk about race because white culture values certain ways of knowing and not others, and assigns a higher value to some ways of behaving than others. Because these ideas have been maintained over a long period of time, it is sometimes hard for people to notice that this culture is based in whiteness. What are the characteristic of white supremacy culture – and what do we do once we’ve recognized this?

This workshop is part of our 201 Series, which is perfect for those who want to dive a little deeper.
