Racial Literacy and Complex Trauma

 

A PROGRAM FOR RACIAL LITERACY

Racial literacy is a model of personal and societal wellness emphasizing skills for racial stress reduction and interpersonal behavioral shift. Instead of a list of dos and don’ts, racial literacy takes time and personal investment. We explore the personal costs of systemic injustice and build core skills for everyday racial encounters.

ONE

Get ready to take in
facts and feelings about
a racialized society


Remember that racial categories
are not biological realities


Remember that people
do not fit neatly into racial groups


Remember that people
are treated as racial group members
and need to examine that experience

TWO

Discuss historical factors
accurately 




Analyze racial disparities in your
profession & organization


Represent diversity
thoroughly and complexly


Create opportunities to explore
the complexity and trauma of
racial group experiences

THREE

Talk through behaviors of
denial and aggression


Spearhead conversations about
racism in everyday life



Talk with colleagues about
how race impacts your practice


Struggle to change a system that is
unequal while working within it

I had a colleague once who got mad at me
because I told him he was White.
He got so mad that he wanted to fight me.

But that wouldn't do so he walked away to spite me.
So I followed him to enlighten him, ever so lightly.
