The struggle for racial justice in America calls those of us who are White to make this journey. Our presence is needed. We have been absent too long. — Rev. Dr. Rebecca Parker, from Soul Work: Anti-racist Theologies in Dialogue, Marjorie Bowens-Wheatley and Nancy Palmer Jones, editors (Boston: Skinner House, 2003)

Continue to reflect on White identity as it affects your day-to-day life, whether you are a person who identifies as White or of European ancestry or someone who identifies as a Person of Color or a person from a racially or ethnically marginalized group. Record your insights and observations in your journal and/or compare notes with another workshop participant. Watch the series Race — The Power of an Illusion (California Newsreel, 2003) and/or explore What Is Race? on the PBS website. You can purchase Race — The Power of an Illusion from California Newsreel website (which also has a study guide and resources) or borrow it from the UUA Video and DVD loan library or your public library.
