Understanding how anti-Blackness impacts political strategy and political discourse—and how it shapes our current socio-political moment—is critical. Join us for a workshop exploring what anti-Blackness is and how it is different from racism. We’ll identify ways anti-Blackness has been institutionalized both historically and contemporarily, as well as steps you can take to unlearn and combat it. You’ll leave with a robust understanding of how various systems of oppression intersect with one another to create, uphold and perpetuate anti-Blackness.
