About Course

In this course, we ask participants to engage with self on a deep level to begin to understand the smog (Tatum, 1997) of racism that we all breathe every day. This course is one part of a three-part series that builds on each other. We recommend that you begin with this course. This course is level one of three and is aptly named How to Talk About Race: Beginning with Self.

This course will be grounded in praxis that pulls from intergroup dialogue and other critical theories such as Black studies, feminist theories, critical race theory, critical whiteness studies, and social justice education.

This course focuses on stages 1 and 2 of the Intergroup Dialogue model and asks the following questions: 1) How do good and well-meaning individuals create racist institutions? 2) How do our subjectivities as people of color and white people impact our relationships and 3) How do we become personally, committedly, and actively anti-racist as a political act and project?
