RMJJ Community Presentation-What is White?
May 17, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Speakers Bureau of Race Matters for Juvenile Justice (RMJJ) has developed five modules aimed at increasing the community’s understanding of disparities and strategies to address disparate outcomes. The fifth and final of these presentations – What is White? – will take place on May 17 at the Temple Beth El/Silman Hall in Charlotte. The evening, which begins at 6:00 p.m., is open to the public.
Addressing racism is not just about understanding people of color; it also requires an understanding of what it means to be white.
In this presentation, they will:
- Explore the creation of whiteness;
- Examine the advantages it conveys;
- Uncover the costs it imposes; and
- Discover insights that will form the basis for building equity
RMJJ Speakers for this presentation are Bob Simmons, Executive Director of Council for Children’s Rights; Nikkeia Wiler, Managing Director of The Possibility Project-Charlotte; and Rev. Jason Williams.
