About The Event

This session examines the development of Whiteness, White Culture, and White Identity in North America. It explores the impacts Anglo-European religious philosophies and belief systems had on establishing both legality and religion, and the ways these two guiding tools shaped and impacted the psychology of Whiteness. In addition, this course focuses on the developments and intersections between White capitalism (economics), White religion, enslavement of Black peoples, White legality, White politics, and the beginning of White governance in 16th century America. This course also begins the process of detailing the ways in which Anti-Blackness was developed through legislative and judicial processes, facilitating a negative orientation, and positioning of Blackness in North America. This session explores and sets the foundations of constructing, propagating, teaching, and reinforcing Whiteness and Anti-

Blackness to White people, Indigenous, and Black people during this period and beyond. It also explores the ways in which White solidarity and White benefits (mentally, emotionally, and spiritually) indoctrinated, enabled, and incentivized White people to normalize complicity in Anti-Black terror and subjugation. The years/timeframe covered are 1550 – 1650.
