This assignment is grounded in the call by Black and non-Black “co-conspirator”* scholars and activists to participate in teaching and learning about anti-Black racial violence, policing, and community organizing, as well as supporting anti-racism (most recently with the #ScholarStrike or #ScholarStrike). *on the difference between “co-conspirator” (similar to “accomplice”) and “ally” read this and/or see this.
1. First: read at least one of these readings: “Five Steps Latinos Can Take to Combat Anti-Blackness” (in Spanish); “White Allies: Your Anger Belongs in the Streets, Not at Home”; Opportunities for White People in the Fight for Racial Justice AND review at least one of these two websites/curriculum for speaking with children about racism and racial justice: Chicana M(other)work’s Social Justice Summer Curriculum for Children of Color; Ibram X. Kendi’s Antiracist Baby board book and learning guide
2. Then: spend at least 1-hour reading articles and/or watching videos from these lists:
Understanding Systemic Anti-Black Racism in the U.S.: A Reference List
(it is long and thorough, I encourage you to focus on the following sections: Criminalization of Black People; Black Lives Matter Movement; & Resources for White People and Non-Black People of Color)
b. What “Defund the Police” Really Means; The Case for Prison Abolition: Ruth Wilson Gilmore on COVID-19, Racial Capitalism & Decarceration; & Dr. Akhila Ananth, The History of Policing at the CSUs
c. The End of Policing
d. For Harriet: After we abolish prisons and policing…then what?: A Black Feminist Dialogue
e. The Path to Ending Systemic Racism in the U.S.
3. Finally, write a 2.5 to 3 double-page Sentipensante Writing Response based on reflecting on the readings/videos you choose from above and taking one or more of the following “Action Steps”:
i. Having an intentional conversation with a Latina/x family member or friend about internalized racism, anti-Black racism, and African roots in Latin America, as well as bringing visibility to Black Latina/o/xs historical figures/activists/artists/scholars via social media
ii. Having an intentional conversation with a White family member or friend about systemic anti-Black racism and white privilege, as well as bringing visibility to Black historical figures/activists/artists/ scholars via social media
iii. Researching and possibly participating in an organization focused on defunding the police, abolishing the prison industrial complex, and/or transformative justice approaches to violence, as well as bringing visibility to the organization(s) via social media (e.g. Movement for Black Lives; Critical Resistance).
*If you are already participating in an organization doing this work, on or off-campus, you can write about it.
For up to 100 points, you must answer these Qs from a sentipensante perspective (using 1. then responding, 2. then responding, etc. and submit it by November 29th at 11:59 pm via the Turnitin link below:
What did you read and/or watch/hear and what are three key conocimientos you learned?
Describe the “Action Step(s)” you took from the list above (Instruction #3) and reflect on your sentipensamientos about the process.
In what ways do you/can you support policy changes that can help combat structural racism in policing, education, health…
What do you need to keep transforming knowledge into action, or as Anzaldúa says, participating in the ongoing process of “inner work” and “public acts”? Any lingering questions? For more information on Black Feminism check on this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_feminism
