TRAINING INFORMATION:

The Weekend Training on UnDoing Racism is named in honor of its founder, Professor Pharnal Longus. Pharnal taught in Massachusetts state colleges from 1972-2002, and created the Institute for UnDoing Racism at Salem State University in 1991. The Institute runs annually each the summer at Salem State and the Weekend Training is held in the community.


Over the course of a weekend, through dialogue, reflection, role-playing, strategic planning and presentations, this intensive process challenges participants to analyze the structures of power and privilege that hinder racial equity and prepares them to be effective organizers for social justice. Workshop participants will:

  • Develop a common definition of racism and an understanding of its different forms: individual, institutional, linguistic, and cultural
  • Explore one’s own connection to institutional racism and its impact on their work
  • Examine causes of poverty and the role of institutions in exacerbating institutional racism, particularly for people and communities of color
  • Analyze the historical context for how racial classiciations in the United States came to be, and how and why they are maintained
  • Understand how all of us, including white people, are adversely impacted by racism every day, everywhere
  • Build awareness and understanding about ways to begin undoing racism in our organizations and communities
  • Learn the role of community in organizing and the building of effective multiracial coalitions as a means for undoing racism
