Kritikos Anti-Racist Reading Group @ Virtual
Oct 23 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
Inspired by recent mass actions and worldwide protests demanding racial justice, the College of Visual and Performing Arts (CVPA) has organized the Kritikos Anti-Racist Reading Group. The sessions are moderated by Mason faculty members Jessica Kallista and Kristin Johnsen-Neshati with help from co-organizers, Aishah-Nyeta Brown, Natalie Ledesma, Jordan McRae, Sang Nam, and Aries Wilson.
The sessions will meet once a week throughout Fall 2020 for 90-minute sessions with a goal of long-term commitment to relationship building, awareness, reimagining, and action, around anti-racist practices, racial justice, and the creation of conversations as well as systems of compassion and healing. Grounded in the knowledge that it is not a question of whether we are racist, but rather how racism is expressed and experienced in ourselves, our lives, our behaviors, and our institutions, this group explores books, music, art, essays, podcasts, and documentaries.
