Author Shelly Tochluk believes the current battle lines drawn around white racial identity are misleading and dangerous.

She will address the problem of seemingly oppositional – and often manipulative – messaging around whiteness and white people, drawing on themes from her newly published book, Being White Today: A Roadmap for a Positive Antiracist Life.

This talk is sure to provoke deep thinking, as she argues that antiracists must not cede the territory of white identity to white supremacists, but instead claim it as part of our important role in the fight for a just, multi-racial democracy.
