It is absolutely critical for white educators to engage in anti-racism work and confront white supremacy. This is not simply to give an illusion of support for their colleagues of color but also as a way to re-humanize themselves. To paraphrase white anti-racist activists John Garvey and Noel Ignatiev, white educators’ “treason to [white supremacy] is loyalty to humanity.” White educators must move beyond performative allyship and virtue signaling, to actively challenging white supremacy even when people of color aren’t present or watching. In the company of white relatives and loved ones, how might you demonstrate that just because you have white-skinned privilege doesn’t mean you wish to complicit in individual and institutional racism? You will know this is the session for you if you are a white educator who finds yourself asking, I know white supremacy is a problem, but what should I do to solve it?
