1st Thursday – Racism’s influence on the library world
January 7, 2021 @ 2:30 pm - 3:45 pm
Understanding racism’s influence on Vermont, our libraries, and our library associations.
The first step in developing an antiracist agenda is to understand systemic racism’s deep influence on our culture and institutions. In this session, we’ll take an unflinching look at how racism is part of our state and the profession of librarianship, including our associations. Building on this understanding, we’ll discuss what we can do to undo the harm caused by this history, and ask how we can reframe our efforts in the language of antiracism.
