EVERYDAY REPAIR AND REPARATIONS, PART 2 of 2

June 12 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

This is a 2-part workshop: Wednesday May 29 and Wedneday June 12

What do white educators owe every day?

 What do white educators owe global majority people every day? How do we deal with risks that implicate privilege? (How) do white people move out of the way to make space for the leadership of global majority people? How do we embrace grassroots everyday reparations that do not replace but also do not wait for policy changes?

 While this program will focus on the work of white educators, this work absolutely cannot be done without critical and specific feedback from members of the global majority. They are the people most affected by the outcome of any of the grappling by white folks. BIPOC are invited to help channel, critique and push the grappling where it needs to go. Parents, family, caregivers, caseworkers, faith partners, and all members of communities seeking to raise healthy children are invited to this conversation. 

 Luda Bryzzheva sat down with white-identified “seasoned” facilitators and k-12 educators to grapple with the questions above. Their journeys are her own. Together they heart-stormed what it means to acknowledge and work to repair past and ongoing racial inequity and racialized harm as individual white people and members of various collectives. The insights gained in this study will have the potential to transform individual and collective behavior necessary for effective reparations. Perhaps they can even inform us viscerally to know what “embodied reparations” feel like. Presentation followed by Q&A.

Meet your speaker! Luda Bryzzheva is a white Russian immigrant mother of three, a loving and impatient educator, a scholar whose work focuses on pro-liberation education, critical whiteness theory and anti-racism. She is an associate professor in Bilingual and Multicultural Education at Adelphi University, NY; and a facilitator for the Center for Racial Justice in Education in NYC.
