White Discomfort and Black Lives Matter

How might white people better understand their privilege?  How can we understand whiteness and white fragility and become better equipped to address and dismantle systemic racism?  White discomfort is no longer an option while people of colour continue to encounter discrimination, systemic injustice, and death. This course will endeavour to be a challenging but safe space to talk about issues of racism and white privilege as it exhibits itself in a UK context, with a view to building up racial literacy, examining whiteness, analysing systemic privilege and oppression, understanding intersectionality, and acting on the call that black lives, indeed, matter.
