The false safety of proximity to whiteness (Pt. 2 w/ Anastacia-Renee)

35 minutes

When you think of a safe neighborhood in your mind’s eye are you envisioning a white neighborhood? Why is that? Are you low-key promoting white supremacy in the quest for freedom?


Whiteness, and proximity to it, is both safe and harmful. How do we talk to our children about that harm within the safety? What do we do when those “safe” white spaces backfire? What happens when other parents at school assume you are the help? Join our host, Noleca, and our special guest Anastacia-Renee for part 2 of this Raising Rebels special!
