Roberto Schiraldi and Fern Spruill: April 7

THIS CONTINUING CONVERSATION WAS POSTPONED, DUE TO WEATHER. iT WILL TAKE PLACE ON APRIL 7.

Roberto Schiraldi and Fern Spruill will moderate Continuing Conversations on Race and White Privilege on Monday, February 3, at 7 p.m. at the Princeton Public Library. All are welcome to these safe, friendly, confidential sessions for asking questions and sharing opinions.

Among the points to think about: Simply by being born a citizen of the U.S.A. gives you certain privileges that others do not have. Being born male gives you another set of privileges — that you can walk through a parking lot at night and not worry about being raped. By being born able bodied means you don’t have to structure your life around disability.

So says Gina Crossley-Corcoran, who grew up poor and, from that perspective, has a different view of various “privileged states. She wrote a very interesting post, Explaining White Privilege to a Broke White Person on her blog “The Feminist Breeder.” The ideas behind this post will be the topic for the evening.

Past sessions have started at 7:30, but the library has listed this for 7 p.m. Either arrival time is OK.
