Beyond Flashpoints: Practicing antiracism in everyday life

After a summer of national and global attention antiracist organizing you might be wondering, “What’s next?” How do campus personnel apply their knowledge and skills to our campus? The Popel Shaw Center for Race & Ethnicity (PSC) welcomes faculty & staff to attend the Zoom presentation “Beyond Flashpoints: Practicing antiracism in everyday life.” The workshop is being offered on July 27 (1:30-3 p.m.) and July 28 (10-11:30 a.m.)

“Beyond” explores why we enter into conversations about race, ethnicity, and nationality with different perspectives, introduces the concept of “Know-Your-Place-Aggression,” and explores ways to address these aggressions in three areas of campus life. Participants will emerge with a richer understanding of the concept of antiracism and specific ways to employ antiracist practices, protocols, and procedures.

The presentation is an hour; 30 minutes will also be allotted for questions and discussion. The PSC is offering the workshop twice, including a morning and afternoon time, to accommodate different schedules. If you are interested, please email Vincent L. Stephens your name and time preferences by July 20. (stephenv@dickinson.edu). You will receive a Zoom calendar invitation and sign-up info soon after.
