A new group titled “Unpacking Whiteness” will host a first meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 19, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the 707 Building, Room 322.
The mission of the group is to build white racial literacy in white-identifying students to support the holistic inclusion of students and faculty of color at Marquette. This group focuses on authentic reflection of personal racial discomfort, conflict management in conversations about race, white shame/guilt, family privilege and deconstructing white supremacy culture.
Conducted by Hannah Uitenbroek, a master’s student studying history, the group will convene biweekly for the first five meetings (group members’ schedules will dictate future meetings). Interested students must commit to all meetings, and group size will be capped at 12 students. Snacks will be provided at each meeting.
