Deconstructing Racism Workshop Series Fall 2024

The Deconstructing Racism classes will run on Mondays (9/9, 9/16, 9/23, and 9/30) from 7-9pm through the South Orange-Maplewood Adult School at Columbia High School, 17 W. Parker St., Maplewood NJ 07040Part One of the Deconstructing Racism series is called, “Our White Supremacist Culture.” Before we can talk about deconstructing racism, we have to talk about its construction as an intentional and persistent dynamic in our society. In the first two sessions we will discuss how racism is the manifestation of the ideology that white people are superior to people of color. We will explore how this ideology was espoused and codified in law and practice throughout the majority of American history.
