a closer look within

For generations, white people have been consciously, and subconsciously taught that to be white is to be superior. This message has been repeated by the media, by family, by friends, in schools, in books, and in so many other aspects of society. Unpacking this conditioning is critical to reducing the harm inflicted on Black, Indigenous, and people of color; and to promoting wellness in our communities. 

In this self-guided 12 chapter course, we will identify characteristics of white dominant culture, explore how white folks have internalized and externalized white superiority, and examine how conditioned racist thoughts manifest into toxic behaviors. This  journey will look at the following:

White Superiority

Anti- Blackness

 White Power Hoarding 

White Extraction

 White Civility

 White Innocence

 White's Beauty Standards

White Apathy

White Centering

White Privilege

White Meritocracy

Your Instructor


Jacquelyn Ogorchukwu is a writer, designer, and author in the wellness space. She is extremely passionate about creating spaces where Black, Indigenous, and people of color can tend to their racial trauma. 

She holds a Social Welfare degree from UC Berkeley, where she studied the structural, institutional, interpersonal, and internalized forms of racism that affect the wellbeing of Black, Indigenous, and people of color. She also holds a User Experience Design degree, where her research focused on racial trauma, the barriers to therapy for Black, Indigenous, and people of color, and how to design a platform that connects BIPOC clients to therapists of the same background. 

There are so few spaces in wellness where Black, Indigenous, and communities of color have their experiences with racism validated. Jacquelyn is one of the innovators who is committed to changing that. Her racial trauma work has been recognized by BYRDIENew York MagazineBuzzfeedI Don't MindNappy Head ClubBalanced Black Girl, Refinery 29HuffpostMETRO, and more.
