White Affinity Group
7 November 2018
7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
7 November, 7pm, Falmer Bar
We’re starting an anti-racist white affinity group. This is for you if you have passion for ending racism, anger or confusion about institutional racism, guilt and hope about internalised racism, or questions about race that you are afraid to ask. The only requirement is that you want to take an anti-racist stance in learning about race and whiteness, and are willing to face discomfort in the process. The purpose of the group is to make a safe space for white people (and allies of colour) to:
- discuss personal experiences of race and racism
- talk/practise talking about race
- listen to and learn from each other
- examine what it means to be white
- critically reflect on ourselves and our actions
- work to identify and confront racism in our workplaces, communities and society at large.
We will often explore culture together – films, books, performances, as a way into discussions.
The first meeting will be very informal and will take place in the Sussex Uni campus Falmer bar at 7pm just before the start of Thinking Queer: Audre Lorde at ACCA – please note that you’ll need to get a ticket to the performance, which we can stay and talk about at ACCA afterwards. Please email if you would like to be in touch beforehand.
