As educators of color, we should be bold and vulnerable in exploring what is possible within ourselves and our communities beyond the edicts of white supremacy. But there are times when communities of color subscribe to the dehumanizing characteristics white supremacy culture. This session will push educators of color to reflect on white supremacy not only in historically/predominantly white institutions but also within communities of color. In this session, I will provide tools for defining and examining internalized racism (or appropriated White Supremacy) and its impact on us as People of Color. This will also involve sharing how we can identify specific ways each of us has experienced internalized racism, whether at our current schools or society at large. I will present a model of change that could be used to improve our self-efficacy and build our self-love. Finally, I will present a (de)commitment protocol for committing to self-work and racial healing, with the intention of rejuvenating and empowering ourselves as People of Color.
