Unpacking the N!gga(er) Word: Is There a Message in The Madness? Who is allowed to say the N!igga(er) word? What do we do/say when N!gga(er) is said in our classrooms, hallways, practice fields, dinner table, cafeterias and resident halls? Ignoring the N!gga(er) word is not an option anymore – You can hear N!gga everywhere in the 21st century. Participants are challenged to examine their personal/professional histories with N!gga(er), when and/or how they first heard N!gga(er) and pictures/feelings associated with the word. The workshop encourages all people, but specifically young people/future leaders, to consider the ramifications of casual or uniformed usage of a powerful and troublesome word.
