Discussion Series: White Privilege, Let’s Talk
Curious about “white privilege”?
Annoyed by the term, but willing to explore the concept with people you trust, using materials provided by the UCC?
Faith Works looks forward to joining you for a weekly Zoom discussion series, White Privilege, Let’s Talk, to begin Sunday, September 20 after Worship.
If you have time, before that first meeting it may be helpful to take a look at two videos recommended by the UCC as resources for the curriculum.
First, a fast-paced, humorous 4-minute video, “Why Does Privilege Make People So Angry?”
Then a 22-minute video, “Deconstructing White Privilege with Dr. Robin DiAngelo.”
Note your questions, objections and other reactions.
To give you a sense of what to expect during our online meetings, here’s a link to the UCC curriculum
Share time and space to talk with others
Speak from your own experience
Listen carefully before responding
Pay attention to times when you feel defensive and be open to exploring what lies beneath your responses
If someone makes a comment you disagree with, let’s try to be gentle with one another, acknowledging we are all learners. You might ask Why do you think that? Or Tell us more about how you came to believe that before you share your perspective.
If you say something that you regret saying, feel free to acknowledge it with a straightforward Oops.
Allow each other and ourselves to change
This could be fun. We will be making discoveries together, with “beginners’ minds.”
Hoping to see you on Sunday, September 20 after worship,
Carol Tyx and Ann Zerkel, co-facilitators for Faith Works
