LORETTA J. ROSS: CALLING IN THE CALLING OUT CULTURE
Thursday, June 10, 2021 | 6:00 PM (ET)
FREE | Virtual | Registration Required
Can we build a unified and strategic human rights movement that weaves our strengths together and uses our differences as a platform for modeling a positive future? Loretta J. Ross, an award-winning, nationally-recognized expert on racism and racial justice, women's rights, and human rights, believes we can. But to build this movement, we need to make a commitment to recognize and support each other. Calling people in, rather than calling them out, is a prerequisite for building a united movement for human rights.
Join the New Bedford Whaling Museum and the New Bedford Lyceum for a candid discussion with feminist and anti-racist scholar-activist Loretta J. Ross. Ross’ work emphasizes the intersectionality of social justice issues and how intersectionality can fuel transformation. She is a visiting associate professor at Smith College (Northampton, MA) in the Program for the Study of Women and Gender, teaching courses on white supremacy, race and culture in America, human rights, and calling in the calling out culture. Ross’ new book, Calling in the Calling Out Culture, is forthcoming in Fall 2021.
