“Internalized racism is the situation that occurs in a racist system when a racial group oppressed by racism supports the supremacy and dominance of the dominating group by maintaining or participating in the set of attitudes, behaviors, social structures and ideologies that undergird the dominating group’s power.” Donna Bivens

Members of Not In Our Town will describe some of the forms that internalized racism takes and discuss some efforts that have been made to overcome it.

Presented in partnership with Not in Our Town Princeton.
