White Privilege/White Fragiliy 101 - Getting in on The Tough Converstions: Why do racial events and tensions drive our school communities apart? How can they be used instead as teachable, community-building moments? As the ongoing surge in highly visible racial incidents impacts students differentially along racial lines, schools have a unique opportunity to deepen understanding of self and society as well as develop campus engagement. Why can't we have tough converstaions about white supremacy, white, privilege and oppression in schools.This interactive and challenging all-day workshop explores how these headline stories relate to the impacts that power, privilege and oppression can have on student and family engagement, teacher preparation, curriculum development, and everyday school and community interactions. We will explore U.S. History, media messaging, cultural habits, the supremacy of whiteness and race issues that have led to where we are today. We must have Moore courageous converstions about power, privilege, leadership and oppression in our schools. With raised awareness, we’ll develop new skills and habits for sustainable, effective personal and institutional transformation.

This interactive, challenging and energetic session will examine and explore these complex issues and the imperative that those promoting diversity and inclusionm must “get in on the conversations.” Participants will leave with the skills and knowledge necessary to begin addressing issues of power, privilege, fragility, and moore; individually and institutionally.
