The Anti-Racist Study Group is on Hiatus until January 3, 2022.
Mondays, at 12:30 PM



    Anti- Racism Study Goup:

  • The Anti-Racist Study Group meetings are held, on Mondays, 12:30 – 1:30 p.m.  

  • The Anti-Racist Study Group will be taking a break until January 3, 2022, when we will begin reading a new book, international bestseller, What White People Can Do Next: From Allyship to Coalition by Emma Dabiri, acclaimed historian and author. This book questions the meaning of whiteness and supports the creation of an antiracist world. It teaches us how to be agents of change against racism and how to help establish a more equitable world. This is a moving, inspiring collection of essays, in which Dabiri draws on both academic discipine and lived experience to probe the ways many of us are complacent and complicit, showing how, instead, we can each undermine white supremacy.

  • We chose this book to help us move beyond our current and growing understanding with hopes to gain some tools and the courage to affect lasting change at this critical point in our country's and the world's history.

  • Emma Dabiri is a regular presenter on BBC and a contributor for the Guardian. She is a teaching fellow in the Africa department at SOAS and a Visual Sociology PhD researcher at Goldsmiths at the University of London. She lives in London.  Please join us!
