Dr Yvette Greslé Guest Space Talk: The Ordinariness of Whiteness
In this guest talk for Race Reflections, I would like to meditate, as a white woman, who has lived in Johannesburg, the Indian Ocean Islands of Seychelles and London, on the ordinariness of racism. I will share, as a reader and a writer, an ongoing intellectual, psychological and emotional process of doing the work to unpick ordinary things. How do I live in this world with the knowledge of things I can’t unsee?
