540WMain Community Learning Academy presents:
Understanding White Privilege
Tuesday October 9th // 7:00pm-9:00PM
Register and pay ($6) in advance
What does white privilege mean?
How does it guise and manifest itself to perpetuate racism at the individual, organizational and systemic levels?
How can white people understand the theoretical language of white privilege and their complicity in it whether intentional or not.
This conversation will be loosely centered around the book Understanding White Privilege: Creating Pathways to Authentic Relationships Across Race by Francis E. Kendall
—> White community members are encouraged to attend but be prepared to be reflective, open minded, and allow the perspectives of non-whites to take center stage
— This conversation may be triggering and uncomfortable for all especially for people of color.
—> This conversation is designed specifically for white community members interested in antiracism and dismantling systemic racism
The goal is to move participants towards being educated, equipped and empowered as change agents to eliminate racism in our community.
Those deaf and hard of hearing are encouraged to register as interpreting services will be provided for all classes and programming at 540WMain.
Seat will be held 15 minutes after start of class.
All classes require cancellation at least 48 hours before the date of the class or event. If not then course fee is non-refundable and cannot be applied to a future class or event.
