Confronting Anti-Blackness in Non-Black Communities of Color 

Index #1003

Level of Experience: Intermediate
Session Track: Intersectionality, Identities and Discussions

This session should particularly benefit anyone who is interested in gaining a deeper understanding of anti-blackness in the United States, and how it operates in non-black communities of color. This session will examine sociological theories of oppression and systemic racism to understand how anti-blackness works in our society. We will discuss how anti-blackness shows up in non-black communities of color, specifically Asian Pacific Islander Desi American (APIDA), Latinx, and Multiracial communities. We will take some time to reflect and unpack personal experiences with anti-blackness in our respective communities.  Together, the group will identify ways to combat anti-blackness in non-black communities of color. 

This session is open to all experience levels, and it is intended for APIDA, Latinx, and Multiracial conference attendees.
