How to Survive Racism in an Organization that Claims to be Antiracist - A Workshop

Tuesday, February 25, 2020 - 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm
CIRCLE Common Room (Old Union 3rd Floor)

This year's Heyns Speaker is Austin Channing Brown, who will host a workshop on how to survice racism in an organization that claims to be antiracist.

Being the only Black doctor, lawyer, social worker, accountant, student, teacher, or [insert your profession here] is exhausting. Thats why black student/professional organizations exist to provide support, tools and resources as you navigate your industry and your personal workplace. Developed from a chapter in Austin’s book by the same title, she will leave you affirmed, empowered by having the unique experience of actually being the center in a conversation about race.

She is author of "I'm Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness". Her workshops are one of a kind, infused with justice, pop culture, humor, and truth-telling. Whether she is being interviewed, lecturing, or leading a workshop, Austin is sure to evoke a full range of emotions as she invites you to celebrate blackness with her.

Lunch will be provided, please RSVP here
