December 2017 Newsletter
Hello All. I'm excited to announce that the 4-day summer Institute, Unmasking Whiteness, I co-produce and co-facilitate along with AWARE-LA is OPEN FOR REGISTRATION! It will fill up fast even though we've restructured to double our capacity. I hope to see you in LA in July 2018!
David Campt and I met last year. He's producing useful content to help white folks talk to other white folks about race. Newly available is a Holiday Survive and Thrive Webinar made up of short videos and worksheets. Exclusively for readers of this newsletter, he's offering a discount code WITNESS you can use (through December 31st) to pay only $5 for access to the subscription resources. It's worth it, PARTICULARLY for those who spend the holiday season in conversation with conservative family members and friends. I really like these materials!
Seeing White is a 14-part documentary podcast series exploring whiteness in America - where it came from, what it means, and how it works. A recent episode of Teaching While White  (Whiteness Visible Part 2) features an extended interview with the host of Seeing White, John Biewen. He discusses the evolution of the podcast, exposing historical myths, and his process of making whiteness visible.
During this season of giving, consider adding to your loved one's library with some of these 26 children's books that support conversations on race, racism, and resistance.
A new Netflix original movie, ‘Mudbound’ "has more to say about whiteness In America than any other Trump-era movie. A person doesn’t have to be hateful in order to be racist."

Laura McAllan is trying to raise her children on her husband's Mississippi Delta farm, a place she finds foreign and frightening. In the midst of the family's struggles, two young men return from the war to work the land. Jamie McAllan, Laura's brother-in-law, is everything her husband is not - charming and handsome, but he is haunted by his memories of combat. Ronsel Jackson, eldest son of the black sharecroppers who live on the McAllan farm, now battles the prejudice in the Jim Crow South.
