When we think of the leaders of white supremacist movements, we often picture white men. But what about the role of white women, both historically and today? How do we truthfully talk about the role white women played throughout the period of American slavery, the Jim Crow era, and the activities of white nationalist groups today? How does the incomplete telling of our history and the role white women have played in it impact our expectations of white women today? What would our country look like if white women deployed their social status, spending power, political influence, and collective energy to actively become a part of the solution to dismantle white supremacy?
Featuring authors Stephanie Jones-Rogers, Elizabeth Gillespie McRae, and Seyward Darby, this conversation will take a look at our history and challenge our understandings of the power of white women throughout our history and now.
