The Context of White Supremacy hosts the sixth study session on legendary poet, author, scholar, mother, sexual abuse survivor and Victim of White Supremacy Dr. Maya Angelou. Dr. Angelou passed away in May of 2014. Her counter-racism offerings are deserving of reflection. We’ll examine her 1969 novel, I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings. This book is a chilling indictment of White people and their global system of terrorism aimed at black people. Gus’ camping trip canceled last week’s attempted broadcast. So two weeks ago Dr. Angelou discussed how the Racist humor that accompanied the murder of a black person caused Dr. Angelou and her brother to be shipped out of the South. She also shared how a White Supremacist dentist declared that he would prefer to put his hand in the mouth of a dog before working on the teeth of a nigger – Dr. Angelou’s grandmother had helped this White man. Once in California, Dr. Angelou remarked about being in a predominantly White school where the White children made errors with confidence she couldn’t muster. We’ll make note of the operational changes of Racism as she’s now in California. We’ll also remain vigilant for the influence of White God/White Jesus/Christianity.
