Investing in difficult dialogues on racism

Investing in difficult dialogues on racism

By Sanjiv Lingayah , March 2016

In the slow march towards racial justice it is not enough to address the consequences of racism and racial hierarchy. We must try to reshape the context that informs and allows this situation to still exist.

Issues of race and racism are contentious and contested, and debates are often shallow and shrill. Progress is too slow and we are not yet on the right path to racial justice.

In his research paper, Sanjiv Lingayah calls for funders and activists to invest in and support a process of ‘reckoning’ with the aim of stretching the collective conversation. He does this not to reach consensus, but to illuminate and work with the difficulty of race, racism and racial hierarchy.
