Teach-In: Confronting Systemic Racism and Privilege

When: Wednesday, April 25, 2018 2:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Where: M-Building, Little Theatre

“Although racism does, of course, occur in individual acts, these acts are part of a larger system of interacting and interlocking dynamics. The focus on individual instances prevents the personal, interpersonal, cultural, historical, and structural analysis that is necessary in order to challenge this larger system.” -Robin DiAngelo, What Does It Mean to Be White? Developing White Racial Literacy (2016)

We invite you and your students to join us for an afternoon of conversation, reflection and learning. While few classes meet during this time, please feel free to bring your class.

The event Program will include:

Voices of LaGuardia
Stories gathered from faculty, staff, and students, and presented by theater students.

  • Anti-Racism Teaching and Activism – Dr. Joni Schwartz, Humanities Department, LaGuardia
  • Unconscious Bias – David Peters, Diversity Trainer
  • Contemporary White Nationalist Organizing – Dr. Spencer Sunshine, Fellow, Political Research Associates
  • Systemic Racism – Dr. Alex Welcome, Department of Social Sciences, LaGuardia

The event is sponsored by Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ), LaGuardia, a group of faculty and staff who identify as allies in the fight against racism and privilege at LaGuardia and beyond. SURJ is a national network of groups and individuals that organizes and moves white people to action as part of a multi-racial coalition for justice.
