Continuing Conversation: June 2

Our next Continuing Conversation will be Monday, June 2 at 7 p.m. at the Princeton Public Library. Roberto Schiraldi and Fern Spruill will moderate the May 5 Continuing Conversation, held in partnership with the Princeton Public Library as a safe place to have open and frank discussions about race. Everyone is invited!

The topic? We will continue the discussion that began with Gina Crossley Corcoran’s post “Explaining White Privilege to a Broke White Person.” Corcoran, who grew up poor, has a blog “The Feminist Breeder,” and she posted Explaining White Privilege to a Broke White Person.

An article in The Nation tells how the federal budget, from the Kennedy administration to now, favor poor rural whites more than poor urban blacks. As noted by LeRhonda Gates, the article is called What White Privilege Looks Like When You Are Poor.

A Princeton University student, Tai Fortgang, wrote a controversial essay about privilege, and here is one of the recent retorts.

The goal: a frank and open discussion with confidentiality. All are welcome.
