Organized by Danielle Wright

“A comfortable place for uncomfortable questions.”
The White Privilege Research Room is a pop-up living room and research space created for casual investigations into the embodied experiences of white culture and white privilege. Thought-provoking inner and interpersonal dialogue will be augmented/enhanced with key texts and relevant audio/visual media. Space will be prioritized for Black womxn and womxn of color but all bodies are welcome.
What does white privilege look like?
What does white culture sound like?
What does white privilege feel like?
What does white privilege taste like?
What does white culture smell like?
