E8: How White Parents and Caregivers Can Become Antiracist (Part 3 of 3)
Show Notes

In this final episode of our three-part series, SooJin and Hannah speak with Robin Alpern and Edie Grauer from the Center for the Study of White American Culture. We explore the complexity of white supremacist culture and how racially mixed communities are not necessarily free from racism. Both Robin and Edie talk about being raised by parents who made them aware of race and racism and instilled in them the need to actively resist racism. They share stories about their respective upbringings, how they have come to make antiracism a way of life, and how they have raised their own children to be antiracists. They also talk about their work at “the Center” and how these efforts are contributing to an antiracist and multicultural society - which is better for EVERYONE. We strongly encourage you to check out their upcoming workshops, as well as additional resources listed below!

Please note: We sometimes use the acronym BIPOC, which means Black, Indigenous and/or People of Color.
