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 L4HSU summer workshop series and have been extended into the 2016-17 school year.
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.
While we will be covering the concept of microaggressions during our upcoming workshops, you should also attend the
with Christine Mata & Roger Wang on March 30th at 10:00am Library 114.
