Event description
If I am White Can I Wear Humanize My Hoodie?

About this Event

Jason Sole and Andre' Wright have come together to create the Humanize My Hoodie movement. This movement is designed to foster critical conversations about threat perception. With the senseless killing of ancestor Trayvon Martin, many conversations spurred about Black and indigenous people of color, and their use of hoodies. We seek to further the discussion with hoodies designed to reduce the stigma associated with clothing items. The Humanize My Hoodie Movement is an opportunity for people to discuss the ways in which we view threat.

This four-hour workshop will examine four critical topics:

• The history of the hoodie (a global perspective)

• The mission and vision of the Humanize My Hoodie Movement

• The differences between white people and people of color wearing the brand

• If you're white, what should you say to someone who's asking about the Humanize My Hoodie Movement!

3.5 Continuing Education Credits will be provided.
