“The History of ‘Whiteness’ in America”

Presented by Ken Goodrich
March 17, 2019

Inspired by April Kelsey's recent sessions on the untaught history of being Black in America, this session explores the mostly untaught history of the White race. Far from immutable, white as a race is a uniquely American concept, born out of rebellion right here in Tidewater! We'll discuss the origin and evolution of whiteness in America, and race in general, as social, religious, legal, and “scientific” constructs, starting from colonial Virginia to the present.
