Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: Racialized Speech
In belated honor of Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday, we'll be exploring the importance of language and its effect on continued racism.
The discussion will be led by Dr. Cindy Acker and we'll cover the racialized concept of black versus white in ordinary speech:
Blackmail, Dark side, Blacklist
White lie, In the light, white light
How does darkness as a racialized metaphor impact our speech, our business lens, and the internalized view of others?
