Session Focus

This session challenges white Christians to dig deeper to understand that whiteness is a culture that has, through institutional racism, been elevated over other cultures as “the” norm and standard against which people of color are measured (unfairly). Some examples offered here include how this centering of whiteness negatively affects people of color as well as white people. We will also hear from Dr. Robin DiAngelo, a white, anti-racism author and educator, about her own journey to understanding racism and her responsibility to resist it.
