The final part of our 3-part series, Race: The Power of an Illusion, examines the concept of “whiteness” and how that characteristic offers privileges that seem nearly invisible to those who benefit. Which nationalities and immigrants were granted the privilege of “whiteness” and what advantages did that convey? When opportunity is not equal, it results in a wealth gap that cannot be explained by educational achievement, graduation rates, or other factors. Once we recognize the situation that has been created over time, we are in a better position to make positive changes in the future. A facilitated discussion will follow the film.
