Monday, September 26, 2016: Understanding privilege and practicing solidarity--part 2

Sharon Sobotta interviews Shakti Butler and Peggy McIntosh

Sharon Sobotta catches up with two feminist scholars whose groundbreaking work changed our understanding of racial oppression and privilege.  Shakti Butler is a filmmaker and educator, whose latest film is Cracking the Code: The System of Racial Inequity. This film is an ideal introduction to the dynamics of systemic racial inequity. It is appropriate for use in education, heathcare, philanthropy, government, and nonprofit.

Peggy McIntosh is founder of The National SEED Project and author of the classic 1989 article, "White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack." She is making her article available publicly online for the first time in an authorized version at http://nationalseedproject.org/white-privilege-unpacking-the-invisible-knapsack.
