Understanding White Privilege | October 9th

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
 
Details
—> 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.
