Whiteness: The Seesaw of Inclusion and Exclusion - How European Immigrant Ancestors Adapted to a Racist Society

Event Description:

How did European ethnic groups become White? Why does racism privilege some white racial subgroups over others? In this workshop participants will learn about and reflect on the un-mourned losses, and illusory gains in being White. Participants will experience and explore their emotional reactions to conversations about racism, in an environment that promotes understanding and acceptance.
