Session 1 – November 12, 2018
Grounding: Welcome, Definitions, and Values
At this first gathering, we’ll spend most of time getting to know each other; grounding ourselves in the values and agreements for the group; and talking about logistics. We’re looking forward to meeting you!
- “What is White Supremacy?” by Elizabeth “Betita” Martinez
- “Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack” by Peggy McIntosh
- “The Urgency of Intersectionality” TED talk video by Kimberlé Crenshaw (19 min)
- No Progress Without Struggle by Frederick Douglass
Bonus: If you would like to get a serious head start on the materials, begin listening to the podcast series, Seeing White (available at the link as well as through many podcast services such as Soundcloud). Think of it like a book you will be “reading” until our January 28th meeting.
