Unlearning Racism
Ricky Sherover-Marcuse, 1938-1988

"...'to unlearn' is not the opposite of 'to learn.' Thus, for example, the necessity of 'unlearning racism' does not imply that racism is 'learned,' or that racist attitudes are acquired through a 'learning' process.

On the contrary, racist 'thinking,' like other forms of mystified consciousness, represents a disturbance of the learning process, a disturbance which itself is the consequence of social oppression and which in turn serves to perpetuate it." ¾ Ricky Sherover-Marcuse

Ricky left us a legacy and a task. Her work needs to continue. A group of people who have been touched by Ricky have come together to document and continue her work. Please join us in that venture.
