Viewing and Discussion Groups
White Like Me: Reflections on Race from a Privileged Son (2013, 1 hr 9 min, close-captioned), offers a personal account on whiteness, white privilege and racism in America. In this documentary, Tim Wise discusses how white privilege harms not only people of color but white people as well. Participants will be asked to view the film independently, reflect critically using guided questions, and then participate in a small, pre-scheduled group discussion afterward.
Participation in discussion groups requires pre-registration. Please note that separate discussion groups have been created for faculty, staff, grad students, and postdoctoral researchers. After selecting a group, please use the link below to view the film no more than 24 hours before your scheduled discussion group to ensure that the film's details remain fresh in your mind.
If a group is 'closed', please make another selection or email us at CNS-Together@umass.edu for more information.
