Ongoing :: Dismantling Institutional Racism

December 4, 2020 @ 12:00 pm

The Dismantling Institutional Racism module (40 mins) is only available to California Library staff via CALL Academy.

One of the major barriers to dismantling institutional racism is a lack of effective vocabulary, analysis, and principles. Libraries have the potential to be at the forefront of efforts to dismantle racism in our country.

Presenter: Niche Academy and Dr. Tobin Miller Shearer. Tobin Miller Shearer, PhD, is Director of African-American Studies at the University of Montana and an antiracism educator with 30 years experience working to dismantle racism in predominantly white institutions. As a white man, he is being asked by his colleagues of color to offer these kinds of educational resources at this historic moment.

CALL Academy Modules are available 24/7 for your learning convenience
