UNLEARNING RACISM, REDEFINING IDENTITY:
Culture Workers and the Frontlines of Change
AAAS / CSRE 170A
Letter / Credit / No Credit
DATE & TIME : Wednesdays, 6:00 PM – 7:50 PM
IDA Instructors: A-lan Holt & Amara Tabor-Smith
Guest Instructors: TBA The fabric of racism is inextricably woven and constructed into the founding principles of the United States. As such, the concept of liberation and equity cannot be fully realized unless we address how race and racism sustain our collective oppression.
The first three weeks of this course will utilize the Undoing Racism training work of The People’s Institute For Survival and Beyond (PISAB) based in New Orleans, LA. PISAB is a national and international collective of anti-racist, multicultural community organizers and educators dedicated to building an effective movement for social transformation. PISAB is recognized as one of the foremost anti-racism training and organizing institutions in the nation. Following the first three weeks of Undoing Racism training, we will have weekly guest artists and scholars whose social justice work and approach will help us to imagine and effectively work towards building more equitable cultures, communities, and institutions.
