Rethinking Historical Trauma
Laurence Kirmayer, Joseph Gone, Joshua Moses
http://gonetowar.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/HT-Editorial.pdfArticleThis is an academic article published in Transcultural Psychiatry, so the language might not feel comfortable to all, but I think it does an excellent job examining how we conceptualize atrocities and how our dialogue influences the actions we take.

White Racial Identity DevelopmentHelmshttps://mss.boisestate.edu/tunnel-of-oppression/inside-the-tunnel/helms-white-racial-identity-development-model/Website/modelIt might be useful for all of us to consider our racial identity development, particularly given that it is primarily White people on our anti-oppression working group. There are lots of models of racial identity development, and most theorists I'm aware of argue that white racial identity development is separate from any other kind of racial identity development due to systemic power. I personally find Helms's model useful. Sara

The Urgency of Intersectionality (TED talk)Kimberlé Crenshawhttps://www.ted.com/talks/kimberle_crenshaw_the_urgency_of_intersectionalityVideoNow more than ever, it's important to look boldly at the reality of race and gender bias — and understand how the two can combine to create even more harm. Kimberlé Crenshaw uses the term "intersectionality" to describe this phenomenon; as she says, if you're standing in the path of multiple forms of exclusion, you're likely to get hit by both.

Slavery By Another NamePBS http://www.slaverybyanothername.com/pbs-film/FilmSlavery by Another Name challenges one of our country’s most cherished assumptions: the belief that slavery ended with Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation of 1863. The documentary recounts how in the years following the Civil War, insidious new forms of forced labor emerged in the American South, keeping hundreds of thousands of African Americans in bondage, trapping them in a brutal system that would persist until the onset of World War II.KristyKristy: just saw this - excellent and enlightening background and context, brings in issues of economic inequality and the birth of the prison industrial complex.

White FragilityRobin DiAngeloDiAngelo, R. (2011). White fragility. International Journal of Critical Pedagogy,3(3), 54-70.Academic Journal ArticleAbstract: White people in North America live in a social environment that protects and in-sulates them from race-based stress. This insulated environment of racial protec-tion builds white expectations for racial comfort while at the same time lowering the ability to tolerate racial stress, leading to what I refer to as White Fragility. White Fragility is a state in which even a minimum amount of racial stress be-comes intolerable, triggering a range of defensive moves. These moves include the outward display of emotions such as anger, fear, and guilt, and behaviors such as argumentation, silence, and leaving the stress-inducing situation. These behav-iors, in turn, function to reinstate white racial equilibrium. This paper explicates the dynamics of White Fragility. Tadeo
