  • Anti-Racism, "White Fragility" and the "Third Reconstruction": A Black Feminist Praxis of Survival, Resistance, and Hope
    6:00pm Warch Campus Center 204 - Cinema
    In 2011, Dr. Robin DiAngelo published the article "White Fragility", which deeply interrogated how and why the collectivity of white identified people in the USA do not want to talk about how racism and white privilege impact their and non-white people's lives. "White fragility" was coined by Diangelo to describe how white people collectively find any conversation about race to be too emotionally difficult to productively engage in. White Fragility often means there is dismissal or denial of how mostly white people collude with systemic racism, benefit from white privilege, and how "race matters." From dismissing the validity of systemic racism, to making it about [white] "hurt" feelings, to wanting to be "Post-racial", white fragility is a deeply troubling barrier in creating anti-racism activism and ally-building. Over the past decade of scholarship dedicated to ethical consumption ("good food", locavorism, vegetarianism, Fair Trade, veganism) , scholars and food justice activists who are focused on intersections of food, ethics, and race have noticed a pattern: the mainstream ethical food movement rarely, if ever, addresses how race (i.e., racism, whiteness, racialization, anti-racism) operates when it comes to food, sustainability, and ethics. Even though critical race applications within the ethical food movement are slowly gaining momentum, many people of color involved struggle with how to navigate, intervene, and break past the barrier of "white fragility" and build intersectional anti-racist based "good" and "ethical" food models and praxis. "Intersectional" in this context means that even though anti racism is the central goal, one must practice anti racism while not reproducing other "isms" (i.e., heterosexism, cis-sexism, ableism). Intersectional frameworks, most importantly, take into account that race does not exist in a vacuum, and is deeply affected by factors such as class, gender, region, age, sexualities, and ability. As an African American food and health scholar, Dr. Harper will specifically talk about key strategies to identify conscious and unconscious racism, "white Fragility", and the health and nutritional consequences of "racial battle fatigue". Dr. Harper will creatively use real life examples of how systemic racism and white fragility operate, how to intervene, and how to create intersectional anti-racism for empowerment. Most importantly, even though Dr. Harper's focus is on food, ethics, and race, this talk will be of interest to anyone who desires to gain literacy and action around health, food, and racial justice during what Dr. Barber of the North Carolina NAACP calls the "Third Reconstruction" of the USA. It is a timely talk during a new era of American politics that threatens decades of social justice and civil rights work collectively and successfully achieved by thousands of people of color and allies.
