Lila Cabbil presents Accountability and White Anti-Racist Organizing: Stories from Our Work

Description: 

 

Join Baltimore Racial Justice Action in welcoming Lila Cabbil, one of the editors of the recently published anthology, Accountability and White Anti-Racist Organizing: Stories from Our Work.

A growing number of white people are working for racial justice, but experienced organizers caution that, to be effective, white activists need to develop accountable relationships with people of color.  Though easy to understand in concept, this advice is sometimes more difficult to apply in practice. 

Some white people are moving beyond limited and simplistic models of colorblindness, diversity and multiculturalism to developing accountable relationships with people of color.  Now a select group of white-identified anti-racist organizers from around the country tell personal stories and offer lessons from their everyday experiences that reveal how the notion of accountability informs their work.  Lila Cabbil, one of the co-editors with thirty-five years of experience, will discuss and take questions on this exciting new work.

Suggested donation of $5-$10 at the door.  Books will be for sale through Red Emma's.
