These resources have been compiled to accompany several series of discussions on the concept of whiteness as it exists in the US, California, Humboldt County, and especially within Cal Poly Humboldt. These discussions began as part of the 2016 L4HSU summer workshop series (now L4Humboldt) and has been extended through other series on related topics.

For the most up-to-date information and calendar of other related events, please the Library's calendar of events.
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.
