Why does the mere mention of the term "white privilege" seem to shut down meaningful dialogue? Why is it so scary? Is it real? Why bother? Join Suzanne Roberts, co-founder of Safe Conversations About Race, Dr. Maurice Stevens, Professor, Department of Comparative Studies, The Ohio State University, and Mary Lou Langenhop, as they facilitate a dialogue exploring the world we want to see and discovering what more is possible. It is more and more undeniable that we live in a world where injustice is pervasive and tolerated. The host committee believes we have to find another way beyond what we have inherited. They believe the answers lie within us collectively. Together, we will debunk myths and misunderstandings about white privilege and build conversation and community. The series will allow us to learn along the way, remembering that no matter where each may be on the journey, we all can deepen our growth and understanding. You will leave with greater choice, skill, and new actions to create a more equitable society.
Each event in the series will build on the previous conversation, but it is not required to attend all three. Space is limited and participants must register for each event separately. Register by calling (614) 231-2793 or online at www.bexleylibrary.org.
