About the Event

Confronting and unlearning anti-blackness is an ongoing process that begins within each of us, but we don't have to do it alone. In this workshop, together as non-Black People of Color, we will tap into our innate ancestral healing power to bring awareness to the roots of our anti-black biases and limiting beliefs about our Black brothers and sisters. Through trauma-informed facilitated ritual, breathwork, movement, and meditation, we will

  • explore acknowledging and sitting with our emotions, thoughts, and sensations as we dialogue about anti-Blackness,
  • write counternarratives to combat anti-Blackness that bring us closer to taking action aligned to justice and love, and
  • commit to transformational solidarity (e.g., I am not free until Black people are free) instead of transactional solidarity (e.g., the Black community fought for me so I must fight for them).

What is Anti-Blackess?

In dr. kihana miraya ross' New York Times Op-ed, Call It What It Is: Anti-Blackness, she writes "anti-blackness is one way some black scholars have articulated what it means to be marked as black in an anti-black world. It’s more than just “racism against black people.” That oversimplifies and defangs it. It’s a theoretical framework that illuminates society’s inability to recognize our humanity — the disdain, disregard and disgust for our existence."

Dr. Ross also calls us to action: "So let’s stop saying racism killed George Floyd, or worse yet, that a racist police officer killed George Floyd. George Floyd was killed because anti-blackness is endemic to, and is central to how all of us make sense of the social, economic, historical and cultural dimensions of human life."
