George Yancy, public talk

A Letter of love: And the Return of White Backlash

Abstract:  In this talk I will explore what it means to deploy love in the process of critically engaging whiteness. Love will be discussed as  a site of vulnerability, courageous listening, and the capacity to be what I call un-suturing. I will then explore some of the graphic white racist vitriol that I received as a result of asking white America to face its whiteness/racism.  I explore this hatred as a response grounded partly in the arrogance of whiteness and its failure to tarry with the fact that the "innocence" of whiteness no longer exists. I will conclude with a brief discussion about what it involves for whiteness to be in crisis, which I argue is a positive way of beginning to undo whiteness.
