Materials for Activity
- Handout 1, White Privilege
Description of Activity
Lead a discussion about the concepts in Handout 1 and any insights that arose from the triad sharing. This should be a short discussion that gets a lot of ideas into the room. Because there is often resistance to the idea of White privilege, probe participant reactions to the concept. Ask: What is your general response to the idea of "privilege" or "White privilege"?
Limit the discussion to 15 minutes. If needed, ask participants to hold on to lingering questions while the group moves on to examine White privilege from another angle.
