UWO Women’s Center – Seeing White Podcast Discussion Group: 

Just what is going on with white people? Police shootings of unarmed African Americans. Acts of domestic terrorism by white supremacists. The renewed embrace of raw, undisguised white-identity politics. Unending racial inequity in schools, housing, criminal justice, and hiring. Some of this feels new, but in truth it’s an old story. Why? Where did the notion of “whiteness” come from? What does it mean? What is whiteness for? All sessions are facilitated by Dr. Alicia Johnson and held via Microsoft Teams. Please email womenscenter@uwosh.edu for more information.
