Undoing Whiteness in

American Buddhist Modernism

   Thursday, April 22nd from 5:00 to 6:30 pm   

What is “whiteness” and how has it shaped, functioned in, and hindered American convert Buddhist modernism? How have Buddhists of Color illuminated and undone whiteness? How can white practitioners support and enact the practice of racial justice and collective liberation? And, how should we historically situate the “radical re-orientation” underway in these Buddhist lineages?
