White Allies: What Lies Beneath the surface?

Leave some of the layers of what you have read and have been taught at home. Be open and prepared to delve within.

White Allies: What Lies Beneath the surface? is a thought-provoking introduction to this challenging and alternative way of approaching anti-racism work. Hear from White Allies Founder Josephine about why she started her initiative www.whiteallies.org and why she believes centring white people in anti-racism work is necessary if not essential.

On the website, Josephine invites white people to share stories and experiences of witnessing racism and benefitting from privilege.

This talk was part of The Space In Between festival of talks, events and happenings celebrating Brixton’s Creative Enterprise Zone, Make It in Brixton in October 2021.

We all want to make it.
Make it in our chosen career. Maybe make it big.

Sometimes perhaps just make it to pay day.
But whatever our ambition, what unites us all is the desire to thrive, be recognised – and be supported.
And that’s what Lambeth’s Creative Enterprise Zone is all about. Supporting creative people to do amazing creative things without having to leave our amazingly creative corner of south London.
Because we all want to make it – of course – but more than that, we want to Make It in Brixton.
