Training and Popular Education

Training and popular education are strategies intended to build individuals’ and groups’ capacity to understand structural racism, practice analyzing and applying, and build confidence and skills to act individually and collectively. Groups using these strategies should note that, while they are important components of a comprehensive effort, training should not be confused with doing the work itself.

“We all have a sphere of influence. Each of us needs to find our own sources of courage so that we can begin to speak. There are many problems to address, and we cannot avoid them indefinitely. We cannot continue to be silent. We must begin to speak, knowing that words alone are insufficient. But I have seen that meaningful dialogue can lead to effective action. Change is possible.”

~ Beverly Daniel Tatum, “Why Are All The Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria?”: A Psychologist Explains the Development of Racial Identity
