Identity and Power: How to Use White Privilege for Good

Fri 4 PM | Studio

Crystal Byrd Farmer

We are all created in God’s image, but we have the tendency to self-segregate by race. How can we achieve social justice if we have not come to terms with the power and privilege we already have? This workshop will focus mainly on racial identity but will include a discussion of intersectionality with gender, orientation, and class identity.
