Racism, Whiteness, and Privilege

Racism, Whiteness, and Privilege Panel Discussions 

June 24, 2020 and June 25, 2020

In an effort to create meaningful discussions on issues related to the injustices that Black communities face, the Samuel DeWitt Proctor Institute for Leadership, Justice, and Equity sponsored two panel discussions that addressed and delved into racism, Whiteness, and privilege in the current socio-political climate. With over 250 participants and eight fantastic panelists, the two discussions created space for candid conversations on a range of social justice topics including allyship vs. accompliceship, the inherent issues with White privilege, and what all supporters of the Black Lives Matter could do now to help in the eradication of systemic oppression towards Black people.
