  • White Anti-Racism Lunchtime Discussion

    White anti-racism lunchtime discussions resume at noon on Monday and continue on most Mondays thereafter. Please join the discussion! Our two loose themes for the academic year are (1) how racism is experienced in our bodies, and (2) putting anti-racism into practice, i.e. taking action.

    This coming Monday, we will consider Resmaa Menakem's concept of "white body supremacy" and Ruby Sales' question, "where does it hurt?" There is no homework or pre-reading -- all you need to do is email Glyn Hughes <ghughes@richmond.edu> for zoom login details, and then show up.
