Exploring White Supremacy Culture

  • Louisville, KY 40205 (map)

There are white supremacists and there is white supremacy culture. The first we can use to describe particular people; the second is a description of the dominant culture, the culture that surrounds us: it is the air we breathe, the water we drink. White supremacy culture is so much a part of our lives that we don’t even recognize it for what it is.

Do you want to explore white supremacy culture and how we can counteract it?

Join Cory Lockhart and Mandy Olivam for a 3-week series exploring internalized and structural white supremacy culture. Using resources by Tema Okun and dRworks, Mandy and Cory will create space to examine our individual experiences through mindful reflection, ritual, and rich dialogue. Over the four weeks, we will explore deeply both characteristics of and antidotes to white supremacy culture. With an open posture and gentle accountability, we hope to cultivate a small community of collective learning and healing.

Notes: This is a 3-part series offered in November: November 5, 12, and 19, from 7:00-9:00pm in a home in the Highlands. The address will be in the confirmation email.

These are child-friendly gatherings! Child care will be provided on site for those in need.

Cory and Mandy are white facilitators. Honoring that the experience of white supremacy culture affects white people and black/indigenous/people of color (BIPOC) differently, we imagine this space as one for white people to explore their internalized racism and experiences of white supremacy culture, without putting the burden of emotional labor on BIPOC. At the same time, anyone is welcome. If you have questions, feel free to contact us.

For this series, 20% of the proceeds will be given to the Reparations Roundtable.
