White Privilege Panel Discussion

Written by Rowley on October 22nd, 2012

In the past few years, we at Skidmore have tried to come to terms with the state of race relations on campus. Despite some successes, I think you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone who thinks that we’ve done a stellar job, especially given last week’s especially repulsive bias incident.

That’s why this week’s panel discussion, “White is Also a Color”: Privilege and Identity in a “Post-Racial” USA should be of particular import to anybody interested in issues of white privilege and racial politics on campus.

The panelists will include Prof. Beck Krefting (American Studies) Christopher Lawton ’14, Prof. Jennifer Delton (History) Aneta Molenda ’14, Prof. Sarah Goodwin (English), and Prof. Pushkala Prasad (Management and Business). The discussion will be moderated by Prof. Prasad, and a reception will follow.

Wednesday October 24, 6:30pm @ Gannett
