Much of what we know in today's American Culture, and how we have come to know it has been shaped by European colonization and western imperialism. How do we dismantle harmful systems of oppression rooted in the exploitation of the “other”? This Olio two-part series traces historical events that created the foundation for an exploitative, unjust world. Injustice is not only perpetuated by systems operating as they were designed to but also deeply embedded within us.
How might we use scientific research, as well as indigenous ways of knowing and healing, to unlearn false and harmful narratives about human differences? This Olio will challenge us to explore within ourselves and reflect on some ways that we all participate in perpetuating systems of oppression and how we might work to dismantle them instead.
*This is a 2-part Olio series meeting on Jan 21st and 28th*
Kim Nguyen is a doctoral student at City University of New York in the Critical Social and Personality Psychology program and a research associate at sexgenlab.org.

Kim is interested in the different ways in which social injustice and power dynamics dehumanize and disrupt our ability to connect with one another (and ourselves).
