Conversation with Authors: Becoming a White Antiracist
Boldly, these authors call for the deconstruction of white supremist structures designed to maintain and reward the truncated imaginations of white professors concerning the systemic hatreds and racist activities baked-into our world of scholarly pedagogy and beyond. This conversation with Stephen D. Brookfield and Mary E. Hess, authors of Becoming a White Antiracist, will delve into their struggle to develop this counter-cultural motif. The work of becoming a white antiracist is routinely met with institutional obstacles, collegial nay-sayers, or out-and-out rejection. We will dialogue about the author’s well-crafted approaches, strategies, and methods for creating an antiracist ecology in your school, workplace, community, and home. We will discuss ways to use this book as a resource to improve the formation of students, to correct the deformation of faculty, and to explore the needed identities to become a white antiracist.
