Center for the Study of White American Culture, Inc. (CSWAC) is offering a live, online interactive workshop. We’ve been taught to be “colorblind.” What does that really mean? Will it bring us racial harmony and equality? Is it effective in combatting white supremacy? Can we address race by refusing to see it? We will look at colorblindness and raise the possibility of an anti-racist color consciousness as a more effective path to racial justice.

TOPICS WILL INCLUDE

  • Origin and history of colorblindness
  • How colorblindness upholds systemic racism
  • What Dr. King really said about the content of our character
  • Children and colorblindness
  • Effectiveness of color consciousness as pathway to racial justice
  • Practical applications of color consciousness
  • and more!
