the film poses some big questions: “What does it mean to be white?” “Isn’t racism a thing of the past?” “What about us?” “Shouldn’t we be colorblind?” Film followed by discussion lead by expert in race relations.

Anti-racist educator and author Tim Wise offers a look back at the race-based white entitlement programs that built the American middle class. He then argues that our failure as a society to come to terms with this legacy of white privilege continues to perpetuate racial inequality and race-driven political resentments today. Wise describes how white privilege continues to shape individual attitudes, electoral politics and government policy in ways too many white people never stop to think about.
