The Junot Díaz talk is up! #alaac18
Q: what advice would you give to have conversation about the whiteness of this profession and surviving this kind of environment or just facilitating a discussion about how we could express how we feel?
.Junot Díaz: First of all, librarians, y’all know this. At least the POC know this. I’ve heard it from every POC and everyone involved in libraries, I think libraries need to be honest and have a reckoning of how much whiteness in library is cruelty towards its employees of color
.I don't think white folks & ppl who are addicted to whiteness in libraries know how much pain you cause your fellow LOC. I don't think you are aware of the agony that you cause even by being wonderful and tolerant and being the friend that you go out to lunch with
