This week we are studying the ever pervasive and destructive problems of whiteness. We are looking at whiteness as a social and political phenomenon that must be thoroughly combatted. We will also discuss the nature of fragility and internalized racism. For this group we’ll be reading WEB DuBois’s text “The Soul of White Folks,” and a text, “White Fragility Has a Whiteness Problem,” by Lauren Michelle Jackson.
