(Rescheduled) White Like Me: Race, Racism, and White Privilege in America Featuring Tim Wise (2013, 66 min), with panel discussion to follow

April 19, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Based on the work of acclaimed anti-racist educator and author Tim Wise, this documentary explores race and racism in the US through the lens of whiteness and white privilege. In a stunning reassessment of the American ideal of meritocracy and claims that we’ve entered a post-racial society, Wise offers a fascinating look back at the race-based white entitlement programs that built the American middle class, and argues that our failure as a society to come to terms with this legacy of white privilege continues to perpetuate racial inequality and race-driven political resentments today. The panel discussion to follow will be hosted by Matthew Jeffries (GEISORC), Davi Kallman (Access Center), and Acacia Patterson (Women*s Center). Hosted by the Office of Outreach and Education
