Annex 2. Racial Literacy

Until recently, racial literacy was the core of IBT; racial healing is more recent.
FW Twine, A White Side of Black Britain 2010:  Racial literacy includes:

1. recognition of racism as a contemporary rather than historical problem,

2. consideration of the ways in which race and racism are influenced by other factors such as class, gender, and sexuality,

3. understanding of the cultural value of whiteness,

4. belief in the constructedness and socialization of racial identity,

5. development of language practices through which to discuss race, racism, and anti-racism, and

6. ability to decode race and racialism.
