Terri Givens, “Radical Empathy: Finding a Path to Bridging Racial Divides”

New Books in Political Science

19 Jan 2022

Structural racism has impacted the lives of African Americans in the United States since before the country’s founding. Although the country has made some progress towards a more equal society, political developments in the 21st century have shown that deep divides remain. The persistence of inequality is an indicator of the stubborn resilience of the institutions that maintain white supremacy. To bridge our divides, renowned political scientist Terri Givens calls for ‘radical empathy’ – moving beyond an understanding of others’ lives and pain to understand the origins of our biases, including internalized oppression. In Radical Empathy: Finding a Path to Bridging Racial Divides (Policy Press, 2021), she offers practical steps to call out racism and bring about radical social change.Jill Massino is a scholar of modern Eastern Europe with a focus on Romania, gender, and everyday life.

Terri Givens: Radical Empathy to Bridge Racial Divides

The Empathy Edge

23 Feb 2021

We have so much work to do in this country, in organizations, higher education, and our world at large around empathy, and bridging – healing – racial divides, inequity, and injustice. Today, I talk with Terri Givens about her own personal story and her experience researching and addressing racial inequity. She’s got so much great information to share with you today about how to start taking actionable steps towards radical empathy, what we need to do to heal our country and our world around racial injustice, and what higher education institutions can do to make sure that they’re paying more than just lip service and providing an inclusive environment that not only welcomes underrepresented groups and minorities but helps them be successful and graduate. Terri is an accomplished speaker and uses her platform to focus on inclusive leadership, and encourages personal growth through empathy. Key Takeaways:Know your history. The history of racism is so critical to understanding where we are today.Be humble. Admit when you’re wrong. Listen, try to understand and respond in a way that let’s people know that you listened. Fairness is about making sure that people have what they need to succeed, even when that looks different for different people.Get to know the person. Get paststereotypes and take some time to get to know your community and the variety of cultures and people in your area. “It’s wonderful to have empathy. But you have to take those next steps. You have to talke action to create change. That’s radical empathy.”
