These resources have been compiled to accompany a set of discussions on the concept of whiteness as it exists in the US, California, Humboldt County, and especially within HSU. These discussions began as part of the 2016 L4HSU summer workshop series and have been extended indefinitely- upcoming workshop dates will be posted soon.
The schedule for spring is still in the works. For the most up-to-date information and calendar and/or to register, please visit: http://humboldt.libcal.com/workshops.
The resources are intended to inform people about the issues surrounding whiteness (white privilege, white fragility, white spaces, etc.) and to bring up questions and challenge us about our role in our communities and in our day-to-day lives. These discussions are uncomfortable and challenging by design- beware of triggers and emotionally-charged content. However, you are encouraged to get uncomfortable. By engaging in these honest discussions you will exercise your 'racial stamina' and become more comfortable with being uncomfortable.
