Gaslighting in the Academy: Will Black Lives Continue to Matter?
Presented by Manu Platt, Associate Professor at Georgia Institute of Technology
Overlaying the disproportionate effect of COVID-19 on Black and Brown people has led to a tipping point driving activism nationwide. However, there is a risk that once the outrage passes, structures supporting systemic racism will remain, once again, gaslighting academics and students of color who thought that change was coming.
Professor Platt will uncover micro- to mega- activities that occur on a daily basis to sustain racial inequities, the toll it takes on recipients, and then suggest changes to be made from the personal to institutional level to promote anti-racist practices to transform the academic culture.
