Congratulations to one of CCE’s amazing leaders who oversees the CSU STEM VISTA program, Dr. Kristina Barger, for successfully defending her dissertation, An Exploration of the Perpetuation and Dismantling of White Supremacy Culture in Biology Courses. Kristina’s important research is a natural extension of her deep commitment to creating equity-centered educational environments for students of color, low income students and women. Kristina is invested in listening, learning and transforming herself, her relationships, and her leadership to impact the world in ways that disrupt the status quo and build genuine inclusivity. We see you, Dr. Barger!

Research Description:
A critical examination of how white supremacy culture manifests in biology courses is necessary for creating equitable educational environments as science education is foundationally rooted in whiteness. This qualitative, multiple case study (Yin, 2018) interrogated how four white biology faculty members teaching at 4-year public universities on the West Coast express their understanding of whiteness in relation to their teaching. Findings from this study support the notion that white racial identity influences faculty teaching practices that sustain and/or disrupt white supremacy culture. In order to interrupt the perpetuation of white supremacy, white faculty must increase their racial consciousness and grapple with their white identity development.

Toward a Cure: Cities Declare Racism a Public Health Crisis 09/03/2020

"Health advocates believe that to make real progress in reducing health inequities will require communities getting out of their silos. . . It also means engaging community-based organizations on real and sustainable solutions and interventions, says Fleurant at Emory University School of Medicine. Not only do they know the biggest challenges within these communities, but they also know the people there better and have established trust with them." ,

Toward a Cure: Cities Declare Racism a Public Health Crisis The designation allowed Milwaukee to identify and track COVID-19 cases by race ahead of other jurisdictions in the U.S.—even the federal government.

“If you’re not angry, you’re either a stone, or you’re too sick to be angry. You should be angry. You must not be bitter. Bitterness is like cancer. It eats upon the host. It doesn’t do anything to the object of its displeasure. So use that anger, yes. You write it. You paint it. You dance it. You march it. You vote it. You do everything about it. You talk it. Never stop talking it.”
- Maya Angelou
(in conversation with Dave Chappelle, 2006)

'There Is No Neutral': 'Nice White People' Can Still Be Complicit In A Racist Society 06/10/2020

On specific steps white people can take

I would start with some very deep reflection on what it means to be white: How your own race shapes your life. ... Our voices, our part in this has been missing for all too long.

But again, we're never going to understand this if we don't listen to black, Indigenous and other peoples of color. So start reading what they're writing, listening to their videos, attending their talks and educating yourself." -Robin DiAngelo, ,

'There Is No Neutral': 'Nice White People' Can Still Be Complicit In A Racist Society White Fragility author Robin DiAngelo says that the status quo in the United States is racism, and for white people, that's comfortable. "We've got to start making it uncomfortable," she says.

“Stories matter. Many stories matter. Stories have been used to dispossess and to malign, but stories can also be used to empower and to humanize. Stories can break the dignity of a people, but stories can also repair that broken dignity... I would like to end with this thought: That when we reject the single story, when we realize that there is never a single story about any place, we regain a kind of paradise.” -Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
