Construction of Whiteness Study Group

July 28 @ 6:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 6:00 pm on Tuesday, happening 4 times

 

Brattleboro Common

| Free

The social construction of “race” as a way to divide people is as old as the founding of the United States. Today we are seeing an escalation of ICE raids, police killing, and white supremacist attacks on people of color that are directly related to the construction of whiteness. It is imperative we continue to expand our knowledge of the history of race in this country in order to fight the supremacy in our society. Brattleboro Solidarity will be hosting a study group to expand our understanding of the historical divisions along race and class lines in the U.S as a tool for economic exploitation.

This is an open and free study group. Snacks will be provided.
