Register Now! Spring Diversity & Inclusion Summit: March 9th
Moderated by Kalyani Fernando and Amanda Rybin Koob
In So You Want to Talk About Race, Ijeoma Oluo prompts readers to consider the direct actions they can take to prevent and intervene in racist microaggresions. Still, it can be difficult to disrupt power differentials and dynamics, especially when academic hierarchies are in the room. During this interactive session, participants will engage in activities to explore their own privilege and power, possibilities for intervention, and see models for practicing courage and vulnerability on campus and beyond.

From the publisher: "Widespread reporting on aspects of white supremacy—from police brutality to the mass incarceration of Black Americans—has put a media spotlight on racism in our society. Still, it's a difficult subject to talk about. How do you tell your roommate his jokes are racist? Why did your sister-in-law take umbrage when you asked to touch her hair, and how do you make it right? How do you explain white privilege to your white, privileged friend?
In So You Want to Talk About Race, Ijeoma Oluo guides readers of all races through subjects ranging from intersectionality and affirmative action to "model minorities" in an attempt to make the seemingly impossible possible: honest conversations about race and racism, and how they infect almost every aspect of American life."
