The C.O.W.S. w/ France Winddance Twine

Saturday, June 18th 8:00PM Eastern/ 5:00PM Pacific

The Context of White Supremacy welcomes France Winddance Twine. A professor sociology at the University of California, Santa Barbara, Twine’s research interests include critical race theory,feminist theories, and comparative racial studies. She examined how Racism operates in the United States, Brazil and other locations on the planet. We’ll discuss her 2011 book, A White side of Black Britain: Interracial Intimacy and Racial Literacy. Twine investigates White Women who have had children with black British males – many of them with African Caribbean connections. Twine suggests that these White Women become more informed (racially literate) as a result of these “interracial unions”. However, the book offers no evidence that these White Women divest from White Supremacy and commit themselves to supporting and defending black people and justice. In fact, Gus submits that this text offers an inaccurate presentation of White people, Racism.
