White Privilege, let’s talk. A Resource for Transformational Dialogue

White Privilege: Let’s Talk—A Resource for Transformational Dialogue is an adult curriculum from the United Church of Christ that’s designed to invite church members to engage in safe, meaningful, substantive, and bold conversations on race. Contents include the Curriculum and a Lesson Outline provided by the Massachusetts Conference of the United Church of Christ. Contributor include: Traci Blackmon, John Dorhauer, Da Vita D. McCallister, John Paddock, and Stephen G. Ray Jr.

Divided into four focused parts, each one introduces a different aspect of the dynamic of white privilege:

1. The Spiritual Autobiography Told Through the Lens of Race
2. Whiteness as the Norm: Five Loci of Insights on the Binary of Light/Dark and Black/White
3. The Cash Value of Whiteness or Whiteness as a Tax-Exempt Status
4. On Becoming an Ally

In all four parts, each author contributes a different view of the subject matter presented based on their unique personal experiences. The materials include questions for discussion and reflection.
