Join us for the 2021 Anti-Racism and Equity, Diversity, Inclusion Teach-in for Tulane faculty and staff! Please note you must register for each of the following sessions listed below. We are excited to come together as a community to learn and grow with one another with the following 5 key learning goals.
1. Become Anti-Racist
2. Understand How Oppression Works
3. Know Intent vs. Impact
4. Understand Class Marginalization, Paternalism, and Patriarchy
5. Build Community and Organize Against Racism
The morning session begins with a welcome from President Michael A. Fitts and setting the purpose of the teach-in, followed by a morning keynote from Rhonda Broussard, founder of Beloved Community to ground our work in our beloved city of New Orleans. Interdisciplinary panels exploring the levels of systemic racism and how we can dismantle systemic racism in our community follow.
Our afternote keynote dialogue, introduced by Provost Robin Forman features Ibram X. Kendi, the National Book Award-winning author of Stamped from the Beginning: A Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America and How to Be an Antiracist. Following this afternoon keynote, faculty and staff join virtual lunches with affinity groups that are congruent with their identity and come back together after these lunches to debrief the learning from the day.
Registrants will have an opportunity to view "The Veil," a documentary by Tulane Junior Raven Ancar about Black student experiences at Tulane. Registrants will receive this link via email on March 29th and be able to view her documentary for 7 days (March 29-April 4).
The first 500 registrants will receive a workbook from Ibram Kendi (Be an Anti-Racist: A Journal for Awareness, Reflection, and Action) and a special mask with the 5 Anti-Racist and EDI Teach-In key learning goals. These registrants will receive an email on March 29th about picking these up from the Provost's Office (200 Gibson Hall).
