Notes on Armstrong and Wildman

Key Take Aways:

  • (68) We have to notice.  Don't be afraid to see race.  This article gives us permission and language to use when talking about race. This article gave concrete examples about HOW.
  • (67, 73) Not enough to Notice but also to acknowledge the privilege associated with it
  • (68)  Provides vocabulary for teaching across racial lines.
  • (73) Looking for the Me -- helps build bridges
  • (66) Not the responsibility of students of color to talk about race
  • (76) No magic wand here
  • (71) White people have race (cooshball)
  • (69)  Notice race for 24 hours
  • (69) Silence is a privilege
--> Intersectionality -- seeing oppression as connected (just need to be careful not to derail the conversation and avoid the very conversation about race we are trying to have)
