About the event
Claudia Rankine, Cathy Park Hong, Eula Biss, Rihanna, Childish Gambino are just a few of the many writers and artists we’ll examine to see how language functions to maintain white supremacy or works to dismantle it. Our nation was founded on inequality and preserving the power of whites; all of our issues with inequity today with health care, policing, housing, immigration, et cetera, are not just contemporary problems. Because of this, BIPOC and white accomplices have been using art as a form of resistance since the beginning. We’ll give historical context to help students understand systemic issues and focus on contemporary texts to show students how writers are confronting whiteness, appropriation, and the racial imaginary today.
Students will have opportunities to produce and share reflective writing as well as creative writing. Whether you are a writer, teacher, administrator, or community leader, this course will provide you with valuable information and examples to inform your practice. Click Here to Register!
