Wed 3/2 at 6pm – The Role of Anger in Anti-Racist Organizing

Published by Megan on

It’s often said that racism can only be defeated through love and compassion for one another, and that anger is counter-productive. But is it? Could anger make us more successful activists?

Our BIPOC Caucus is hosting a guided discussion for UAOSU members on the role of anger in anti-racist organizing. You are invited to read two short essays by Audre Lorde and Myisha Cherry and join us to discuss ways to think about effective anti-racist work, allyship, and the role of strong emotions.

Audre Lorde, “The Uses of Anger: Women Responding to Racism”(external link)

Myisha Cherry, “How Rage Can Battle Racism” (external link)

The discussion will take place over zoom on Wednesday March 2nd at 6pm. Register here.
