Anti-Racism: Doing the Work!
You are invited to join Pittsburgh Freethought Community/First Unitarian Church of Pittsburgh Joint Workshops on understanding racism and white privilege. We have scheduled six sessions that will include lecture, discussion, and multi-media presentations along with recommended readings. While not exclusive, the purpose of this series is to develop the understanding and ability of White people to do the work of dismantling racism. We ask that participants commit to reading the assigned material. We strongly encourage participants to attend all sessions, however each session covers a separate topic and will be open to all.
All sessions will take place in the Undercroft Gallery at First Unitarian Church, 605 Morewood Avenue, Pittsburgh PA 15213
Session # 3 - The Invention of Whiteness - February 23, 2020, 1 to 3 PM
Where did whiteness come from? Who is white and how do people get to be labeled white? How does whiteness function? How do we perpetuate the value assigned to whiteness?
A detailed description of each session along with assigned readings will be distributed to each person who registers for the workshop.
