White Privilege

"Deconstructing White Privilege with Dr. Robin DiAngelo" (video, 20 min.)

Robin DiAngelo: "In the U.S., white privilege is the lived experience of greater social/political access, representation and entitlement, and material and economic security that people considered white have as a result of white supremacy. It's important to note that while many white people are oppressed on the basis of class, gender, sexual orientation, ability, religion, culture, ethnicity, etc., it is still true that ALL white people benefit from white privilege in various ways."

DiAngelo reads from her book White Fragility: Why It's So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism in this video discussion: "White Fragility" (1 hour, 23 min.). “For well-intentioned white people doing anti-racist and social justice work, the first meaningful step is to recognize their fragility around racial issues and build their emotional stamina.”

White Supremacy Culture

The History of White Supremacy (2017), sponsored by the National Humanities Center Education Programs

This webinar examines the relationship between white supremacy and the making of America in the long 20th century. For many white Americans at the turn of the last century, “white supremacy” was a political program and a battle cry. A response to Black freedom struggles, changing populations and new economic orders, white supremacy set the boundaries of citizenship rights, national belonging and economic possibility. How did this work? How were these boundaries enforced? And when did white supremacy lose its mainstream viability? Join us as we focus on three mechanisms—political disenfranchisement; extralegal violence; and federal policy—which help us explore these questions about the workings of white supremacy and open up new ways of approaching its history.
