Thought-provoking conversations exploring issues affecting our communal well-being through a nonprofit lens. Moderated by Barry Silverberg, Director, Nonprofit Austin.
In this episode of The Black Experience in Austin, we will talk with Froswa Booker Drew, Vice President, Community Affairs, Strategic Alliances at State Fair of Texas about White Privilege – what it is, its history, how it is maintained, why it is detrimental to Blacks and Whites, and some strategies to heighten our personal and community’s consciousness of institutional racism and systemic impediments to racial equity.
We will also explore Froswa Booker Drew’s personal and her lessons learned that can be of benefit to all of us.
Per Wikipedia. “Although the definition of “white privilege” has been somewhat fluid, it is generally agreed to refer to the implicit or systemic advantages that white people have relative to people who are the objects of racism; it is the absence of suspicion and other negative reactions that people who are objects of racism experience.” It provides obvious and less obvious that white people may not recognize they have.
