White Privilege

I participated in the Anti-Racism Basics for teachers required course at ARPS in January 2003. I grew up in a very white town in Central Pennsylvania, and though I'd thought I'd become the liberal my hometown warned me about, I learned a lot in the course co-facilitated by Kathleen Anderson and Susan Kennedy Marx. I've always hoped to see Tim Wise speak, but he always seems to be here when I have some other unavoidable commitment, in this case a Select Board meeting where we'll be working on the three of the Special Town Meeting Fall 2007 warrant articles.
