University of Southern California Mural Shouts “DISMANTLE WHITENESS”

The University of Southern California now features a mural that shouts in all caps that we must “DISMANTLE WHITENESS”:

The mural was designed by the feminist artist collective When Women Disrupt in conjunction with students in the class “Women: Designing Media for Social Change.”

Recently installed at an entrance to the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism building, it depicts large sketch drawings of four women of color on walls flanking the doorway with the words “DISMANTLE WHITENESS AND MISOGYNY ON THIS CAMPUS” posted on the ceiling above it.

Try to imagine a university allowing a mural reading “DOWN WITH NONWHITENESS” and you will understand more about power differentials than you could by getting a PhD in social justice.

On tips from Guy B and Mr. Freemarket.
