Description

Dr. Derald Wing Sue, Teachers College Columbia University, is the scholar who first coined the term “microaggressions.” In this pre-recorded video presentation, Dr. Sue discusses recent work, Race Talk and the Conspiracy of Silence: Understanding and Facilitating Difficult Dialogues on Race, that challenges the belief talking about race is impolite, or that “colorblindness” is the preferred approach to addressing institutional and systemic racism.
