Confronting Whiteness in the Campus Community

April 29, 2021, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

All the members of the UWM community are invited to join the Honors Antiracism Event Series as we host an online workshop facilitated by Dr. Lisa Anderson-Levy and Dr. Catherine Orr from Beloit College.

What is whiteness? Is it just about skin color? How does it show up in our lives? On our campuses? In our classrooms? Maybe it’s that moment when a white student says or does something — even unintentionally — that targets students of color during a small group discussion. Maybe it’s at the Greek party where a student’s costume feeds into a violent stereotype. Or when white staff and faculty believe that “blue lives matter” is equivalent to “Black Lives Matter.” What do you do? What can you do? If these are your questions, then please join us. In this 90-minute workshop we will discuss ideas and develop strategies for identifying and confronting whiteness.
