De-Constructing Anti-Blackness & Misogynoir (Virtual)
January 30, 2023
Monday, January 30, 2023, 4:00pm-7:00pm (PT)
Hosted by The YWCA of Greater Portland Social Justice Program. Anti-Blackness, the root of most racism and oppression in the United States, is a term that frames the specific racial prejudice inflicted upon Black/African diasporic communities by all groups of people, at a global level. Rooted in White Supremacy strategy and racism, anti-Blackness is woven into the very psychological and sociological engineering of our social systems. Centuries’-long discrimination within our social organization has not only perpetuated anti-Black prejudice within social resources such as housing, access to wellness care, education, and the political landscape but has also fueled a prejudiced-interpersonal structure that intentionally and un-intentionally inflicts harm onto Black communities, building on generations of trauma and abuse.
This workshop aims to dissect functions of anti-Blackness by providing nuance, reflection, and tools to guide participants in recognizing their own anti-Black biases, an ability to recognize anti-Black practices and policies at a macro level and to encourage the dismantling of anti-Black practices at all facets of social existence.
