White Awareness: Handbook for Anti-Racism Training

White Awareness: Handbook for Anti-Racism Training


Judith H. Katz (University of Oklahoma Press, 2003, 25th anniversary edition)

Responding to the challenge of creating a learning environment for effectively addressing racism, White Awareness provides a detailed step-by-step guide through six stages of learning, from awareness to action. The exercises within each of the stages focus on key themes: defining racism and its inconsistencies, confronting the reality of racism, exploring aspects and implications of white culture and identity, understanding cultural differences and examining cultural racism, analyzing individual racism, and developing action strategies to combat racism. The detailed program outlined in White Awareness has proved valuable in educational, business, community, and military settings.

The newly revised edition includes more than 40 activities with instructions for conducting each exercise, as well as recommended readings and sources for use in the activities. Also included are new source information, insights on President Bill Clinton's 1998 "Initiative on Race," and an analysis of controversial research on racism as a mental disorder.
