You are invited to participate in the Spring 2021 Anti-Racist Reading Group for faculty, staff, and students sponsored by the Office for Equity and Inclusion. My name is Demetrius Colvin and I am the Director of The Resource Center and will facilitate this Spring’s reading of the 3rd edition of Allan G. Johnson’s Power, Privilege, and Difference (link) for the reading group. The reading group will meet once a week starting the week of Feb. 15th. If you are interested in participating, please fill out this form by Friday, February 5th so I can get a sense from you all what will be the best time to meet each week for our discussions and if you need any assistance in getting a copy of the reading. Let me know if you have any follow-up questions or concerns and I look forward to learning and collaborating with you all this semester!
Director, The Resource Center
“Part of the mythology that they’ve been teaching you is that you have no power. Power is not brute force and money; power is in your spirit. Power is in your soul. It is what your ancestors, your old people gave you. Power is in the earth; it is in your relationship to the earth.” – Winona LaDuke
