Colorado State University to Host ‘What I Learned from the White Supremacist Movement’ April 23

Abby Ferber, a professor of sociology at the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs, will discuss her research on the white supremacist movement in the United States and the ways it impacted her understanding of race and gender in, “What I Learned from the White Supremacist Movement,” 2-3:30 p.m. April 23 in Natural Resources Building Room 113 on the Colorado State University campus.

The talk is free and open to the public.

Ferber authored “White Men Falling: Race, Gender and White Supremacy” and co-authored “Hate Crime in America: What Do We Know?” and “Making a Difference: University Students of Color Speak Out.” These books, as well as much of Ferber’s other scholarly work, explore the consequences of racism and racial inequality in the United States.

The talk will include a portion dedicated to the examination of the Matrix of Oppression and Privilege theoretical model. Ferber will also discuss teaching and research innovations that have been made through the Matrix Center for the Advancement of Social Equity and Inclusion, which she co-founded at the UCCS campus.

“What I Learned from the White Supremacist Movement” is co-sponsored by CSU’s Women’s Interdisciplinary Studies Program and Alpha Kappa Delta.
