iane and Corey continue their in-depth exploration of race and racism, focusing on the actual four-quadrant work that needs to be done in order to begin to truly overcome these personal, cultural, and social challenges.
As we discuss at the top of the episode, this series has been intuitively following a very familiar arc: our first episode was a practice of integral non-exclusion (“everyone is right”), inviting multiple voices to reflect on the problems of race and racism. The second episode was a practice of integral enfoldment (“everything fits together”), integrating the many partial truths we see coming from the political left and the political right in this country. And this show is a practice of integral enactment (“if you want to know that, or have that result, then do this”), where we ask ourselves the all-important question, what is mine/ours to do?
Each of our guests this month is an Integralist with extensive background in social justice work and/or human development. We hope you will join us and check out these fresh voices! In the first panel, special guests Gabriel Wilson, Jewel Thomas, and Durell Coleman explore work specific to black folks. Then in the second panel, Corey, Diane, Tim Lilienthal, and Lisa Gibson talk among themselves about the work that white people can do, including the benefits of exploring white identity or “whiteness”, as well as making efforts to transform our institutions and systems.
So join us as we explore how to actively participate in the evolutionary work of racial equality and equity, engage in practices that (1) enhance our awareness, (2) evolve our skills, (3) engage our culture, and (4) transform our systems.
