We need to talk about race.
Since its inception, Declarations has sought to shed light on some of the worst human rights violations across the globe. However right now, there is a specific violation that deserves all of our time, attention and effort - racism. Here at Declarations we are now solely committing ourselves to becoming a resource for anti-racist mobilisation, as we launch our new series - It's Time to Talk About Race. We’re here to talk, discuss, share and inform, and to have those uncomfortable conversations that we have needed to have as human beings for so long.
In this introductory episode, we discuss what it truly means to be an anti-racist ally, addressing all the main themes, trends and buzzwords that we are seeing all over our social media feeds. We unpack the meaning of key concepts such as white privilege, racial capitalism, virtue signalling, emotional labour and white fragility, providing an intellectual base from which listeners can further commit to anti-racist mobilisation.
