402 - Identifying and Dismantling White Supremacy in Archives: Developing a Plan of Action

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In this session, we will collectively generate a concrete plan of action for identifying and dismantling white supremacy in archives. Participants will first read Peggy McIntosh's article, "White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack." We will then collectively generate a list of white privileges in archives. Then, for each privilege generated, we will brainstorm a concrete plan of action for dismantling that particular privilege. Participants will leave with an agenda they can start working on immediately.
Facilitator: Ricky Punzalan
