White Privilege Film Showing and Discussion - understand it so you can dismantle it!

Join us on Monday the 14th, 7pm at the Piedmont Deli for a free showing of Mirrors of Privilege: Making Whiteness Visible, followed by a discussion about the history of whiteness and how to dismantle it.
Setting the Record Straight - Promoting Understandings of Privilege and Decolonization - is hosting a free film showing and discussion on white privilege. We will be exploring what white privilege is, what its history is, why it's bad, and how we can dismantle it.

The film being shown is Mirrors of Privilege: Making Whiteness Visible. "Mirrors of Privilege is a brilliant documentary and a must-see for all people who are interested in justice, spiritual growth and community making..."

Following this will be an in-depth discussion about the history of whiteness, what it is, and how dismantling it must be an integral part of any true decolonization process in the US.

Don't feel like you have to know a lot about the issue already in order to get a lot from this event, we strongly encourage folks just beginning to explore this topic to attend!

Where: the Piedmont Deli, 441 N. Killingsworth Street
When: Monday the 14th, 7:00PM
