Webinar Description:

Internalized racial subordination and domination are part of the system of chains contributing to the continuation of racism affecting racially oppressed groups and it has encouraged the physical, spiritual, and emotional self- mutilation and self-degradation of communities of people. By influencing the psychological experience of People of Color, it has sinisterly enticed individuals to contribute to their own emotional and psychological demise in an already oppressive world and experience.  It is important to study, understand, and seek out ways that groups of Color can gain a liberatory perspective in the midst of a racist society, just as it is important for White people to work to gain a liberatory perspective over internalized dominance. This webinar will be a surface scratching exploration into internalized racial subordination focused on understanding the often misunderstood and rarely discussed phenomenon.  It will investigate the complexity of the phenomena of internalized racism and offer participants the opportunity to explore manifestations 
of internalized racism and consequences of internalized racism in their personal and professional lives.
