Film Discussion: Race: The House We Live In (Candid Conversations Wichita)

View all events in: August 2017 | South Central

August 14, 2017, 6:00 PM CT

The final of a 3-part series, Race: The Power of Illusion, will examine 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. A facilitated discussion will follow the film.

Part of Candid Conversations, a city-wide, collaborative series of events in Wichita that looks at how race functions in society and how policing affects minority communities; preserves the voices of Wichita's communities of color; and encourages community members to tell their stories.
