ONLINE: "Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced." In Raoul Peck's riveting documentary "I Am Not Your Negro," James Baldwin holds up an unflinching mirror to the words and actions of the white society of his time, revealing its deeply flawed moral paradoxes. Baldwin's prophetic call to critically examine and diligently work to dismantle the legacy of white supremacy and its devastating impact is as relevant today as it was during his lifetime. While deeply examining the powerful ideology of whiteness as a racial construct, participants in this online course will also explore the complex intersections of racial identity, class, gender, sexual orientation, disability and religion. Engaging with weekly readings, community experts and self-reflection, participants will also explore strategies for fostering a positive white racial identity grounded in an ethic of justice, liberation and solidarity. | Facilitated discussion.
