May Unlearning Circle: Learning from the History of Whiteness
Saturday, May 15, 2021 - 10 am - 12 noon CST

The People’s Institute for Survival and Beyond teaches us that in order to undo racism, we must learn from history. The history of racism in the United States is synonymous with the creation of whiteness. “White” as a racial category was conceived in the American colonies as the way to divide and conquer people in order to suppress interracial alliances with African slaves. Whiteness does exist without anti-blackness.

As we learn from history, what does it mean to be white? What does it mean to be a white anti-racist?
