Join us to view and discuss this important film. Our Move to Amend Delray Beach affiliate saw excerpts from this film as part of the Move to Amend education curriculum and realized its importance. We cannot address racial injustice without those of us from the white class recognizing the meaning, and inherent privilege, of our whiteness.

"Use this groundbreaking film and conversation guide in your organization to help bridge the gap between good intentions and meaningful change. Featuring stories from white men and women on overcoming issues of unconscious bias and entitlement, it is an powerful and unique tool in diversity work. The stories in the film reveal what is often required to move through the stages of denial, defensiveness, guilt, fear, and shame into making a solid commitment to ending racial injustice. This film catalyzes powerful dialogue to support the learning, change and healing of all people who want to undo race-based oppression. Featuring: Tim Wise, Joe Fahey, Peggy V. McIntosh, Marguerite Parks, Gary Howard and many more."
