Developing our identity or who we are is vital for feeling that we are acting as our truest self. Throughout our lives, how we see ourselves and how others perceive us may evolve as we transition from one age to another and adjust to developmental changes. Often times, BIPOC folks will consciously or unconsciously, struggle with their racial identity; depending on the context their living in, they may not have an opportunity to learn about their culture in school and even in their family lives.

In this workshop, we will explore the importance of forming and attending to our racial identity and how living in a predominately white culture can impact our ability to develop our racial identity.  

Learning Objectives: 

  • Understanding the four categories of racial identity development 
  • Gaining awareness on how to maintain a secure and healthy integration of racial/cultural identity
  • Recognizing the psychological harm caused by ignoring racial and cultural experiences in university discourse and the lack of representation in landmarks and public spaces

Facilitators: Myrlie Marcelin and Khan Bouba-Dalambaye
