End Date: 11/2/2023End Time: 12:15 PM
Event Description:
FLEX # 618
Have you ever been asked “Why you talking white?” If so, this workshop is for you. If not, this workshop is for you. Together, we can make more people comfortable w/ authentically expressing themselves.

Chris Molina has heard this question, or some variation, many times in his life. Of Puerto Rican and Trinidadian descent, Chris grew up in predominantly African American and Latinx communities, comfortably interacting in each. What he found as an adult, in the Marines and in college, was that he knew how to effortlessly “speak” in majority-White organizations. He was fluent in each, without even realizing it. He could code switch seamlessly.

This workshop is designed to equip students of color and white classmates, staff, and faculty with the tools to understand Code Switching, it’s inherent benefits and harms. More than anything, Chris wants attendees to know they can talk openly, and genuinely, in all social situations without putting the comfort of others before their own. He wants you to live authentically.
