SURJ works to undermine white support for racism, and broaden the base of white folks showing up for racial justice as part of a powerful multi racial movement for transformative change.
But what about this unjust economic system? How does racism help keep capitalism in place?
What examples do we have of poor and working class white people and People of Color joining together to challenge an unjust system?
Join a conversation with leading activist scholar Robin DG Kelley on what racial capitalism means for our work and how class impacts white people’s role in the fight to end oppression.
Kelley’s work has explored the history of social movements in the U.S., the African Diaspora, and Africa; black intellectuals; music; visual culture; contemporary urban studies; historiography and historical theory; poverty studies and ethnography; and more.
