A talk with Kehinde Andrews

Catalyst / Thurs 16th Nov / 5:15 - 6:15 pm

It's hard to talk about racism with white people. Whether you try to bring it up at home (if you're white) or at school, many will deny that racism is still a thing or that it still has consequences today. Some white people who haven't ever had to face racism are considered an authoritative voice on the subject. Society has gone into collective amnesia about what racism is and is in denial about how it still continues today. How to deal with that if you're black or brown? How to be able to talk to your family, teachers and friends about it, and make them see beyond their privileged viewpoint?

Academic, professor and activist Kehinde Andrews tells you more about how to navigate a white people's world as a black person, and how you can do your part as a white person in fighting this issue.
