Abstract: In an effort to advance theory, pedagogy and activism which seeks to understand how racism can be combated, this study examines the lives and organizations of white antiracist activists. Through these data, it is argued that there are distinct types of antiracism, just as there are multiple ways of theorizing and practicing feminism. This study uses the methods of in-depth interviewing, archival analysis and participant observation to investigate the different ways whites do antiracism. The questions draw upon what little prior research has been done on the topic, as well as issues of concern to scholars, teachers, and activists alike. The first question asks what inspires or motivates white people to devote their lives to antiracist activism. The second question analyzes white antiracists' discourses about race, paying special attention to their orientation towards colorblind ideology. The third question examines what types of actions white antiracists practice, on both individual and institutional levels of change. The fourth question explores the range of emotions that are unique to the practice of antiracism, as opposed to other white states of awareness about race. Woven through this work is an ongoing question about how organizational structure and practice affects the answers to these research questions. The cognitive, emotional, and behavioral aspects of white antiracists' lives are all clearly shaped by the organizations to which they belong, resulting in interesting differences in the responses of those activists who were members of one of the two groups studied. The study concludes with implications of the findings for scholars, teachers and practitioners of antiracism, and suggestions for future scholarship in this under-explored area.
