Revisiting My Dissertation

Wendy White

After just finishing Isabel Wilkerson’s Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents, which was preceded by the reading of Jennifer Eberhardt’s Biased: Uncovering the Hidden Prejudice That Shapes What We See, Think, and Do, which was preceded by the reading of Ibram Kendi’s Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America, Dr. Wendy White thought she would revisit her dissertation. Upon new reflections , she will share excerpts from her dissertation "Dissonant Hu(e)manity: Another Way to be Differently in the Work of Audre Lorde and June Jordan."
