Day 4: is a look at Race in literature. This is a very short listen (3 hours) but really impactful. My white privilege means when I read something that I don’t think about players in the story based on their race but I should pay more attention. Particularly in classics where she points that class and race played huge parts even in the fabric of the background of the story. This made me pause and think about my favorite stories. We are taught a lot even through things that seem they aren’t teaching that Whiteness is higher class, deserves to be the hero, and often the work for that to happen falls on those of other races. This isn’t how it should be but as I think back to my favorite stories, it is unfortunately how it was portrayed. I have a lot to unpack and I know this will shape my reading going forward.
