Walking the Talk for Racial Justice --- Becoming White

Recorded May 20, 2017

This breakout session, led by Rachel Sumner and titled, "Becoming White – Research on White Racial Identity Development", involves discussions of white racial identity development; specifically in the context of the United States. Participants were asked to think about questions like "Where do we get information about what it means to be white?" and "How do white people figure out what their race means for them?"  The group was informed about existing research from the field of psychology and concluded with a conversation about how white racial identity can shape people’s involvement with racial justice work.  It was part of  a youth conference held Saturday at Greenfield Community College.
