Not a Toolkit: Thinking With, Through, and Against WhitenessContains 2 Component(s), Includes Credits
[October 6, 2021 | 7pm ET] Three White members of an educator collective, formed around antiracist education and critical Whiteness studies, share their experiences and insight. “As a group, we talk, think, create, and denaturalize the ways that we are educated by and through whiteness—within our group and with others in our institutions and fields of practice. We have a shared commitment to doing this work with each other as a durational practice that allows us to create collaborative projects, revisit ideas, and hold each other accountable over time. We call ourselves ‘Not a Toolkit’ as a way of troubleshooting the one-off training, the objective-driven and quick-fix workshop, and the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) professional development model aimed at checking off boxes and responding to urgent news cycles around racist violence. Rooted in long-term, embodied, sloggy, and uncomfortable engagements with Whiteness, we will describe a messy history of doing this work and offer creative prompts for thinking with, through, and against Whiteness within each of our specific, non-replicable classroom communities.”
