White Supremacy - It isn't just about the KKK
Most white, U. S. North Americans associate the term “white supremacy” only with avowed hate groups like the ku klux klan, aryan nation and militia groups. Dismantling racism demands recognizing that societal and institutional standards and values in the United States are rooted in a culture-wide belief in white supremacy. In this workshop participants will work together to identify white supremacist cultural norms, the resulting white privileges, and potential actions toward racial justice.
