The Rightness of Whiteness
Historically, much of everyday life in the U.S. has been organized around the idea that white is good, pure, righteous, and most deserving of privilege, power, and protection. In this way, white supremacy no longer derives its power from an explicit social acceptableness. Instead, it has wedded itself -- almost imperceptibly -- to that which is considered neutral, normal, safe, and reasonable. Additional Resources: PBS, The History of White People in America

What is White Supremacy?
On this episode, Educate 8:46 tackles a deceptively simple, yet absolutely critical question. What is white supremacy? It’s more than a term used to describe the behavior of white supremacist organizations. White supremacy can also be traced throughout the history of many systems, institutions, laws, and practices that have normalized the protection and empowerment of white elites above all others.

Education as an Act of Self-Determination
On the debut episode of Educate 8:46, Miami University Professor Dr. Denise Taliaferro Baszile explains why education is ultimately an act of self-determination that can lead us all to a more equitable society. The purpose of education, in a revolutionary sense, she says, is to seek to know better. So that we might be better. So that we might do better. So that we might collectively breathe forth a new, more just world. Additional Resources: Mwalimu Shujaa, Too Much Schooling, Too Little Education Anna Julia Cooper, Voice From the South Carter G.
