Conference Keynote: Understanding White Supremacy, Challenging White Privilege and Working for Social Justice

Paul Kivel

Abstract


How does white supremacy look in 2009? What are the challenges and what are the opportunities we face in a time when some people are saying that if a black man can be elected president we have become a postracial society? How do we encourage white people to take responsibility for challenging specific forms of white privilege built around issues of land, labor, education, housing, and self-identity? Let’s move beyond generalities about racism and white privilege and move into responsibility for addressing concrete issues of racial justice.
