Our continental breakfast panel, Beyond Allies:  Becoming Anti-Racist in a “Post-Racial” Society with John Gentile and Brigid Lang will begin a day‑long series of activities that explore realities, challenges, and opportunities met by anti-racist activists who seek to strengthen the White anti-racist, allied, intergenerational voices in discussions and actions to confront racism pervading institutions and undo racist structures.
The additional day’s activities include a brown bag lunch presentation, What is this thing called “Race”?, with Dr. Deidre Franklin on understanding race and racism; an evening discussion with light refreshments, Affirming Collective Leadership: “Strong People don’t need Strong Leaders”, with Siri Nelson and Tynesha McHarris on inspiring people to imagine new leadership possibilities by engaging others to drive positive social change; and screenings of documentaries and feature films about the advancement of racial justice and diversity, the study of African American life and history, and Black culture and politics.
