Knowingly and unknowingly we all grapple with race every day. Understanding White Privilegedelves into the complex interplay between race, power, and privilege in both organizations and private life. It offers an unflinching look at how ignorance can perpetuate privilege, and offers practical and thoughtful insights into how people of all races can work to break this cycle. Based on thirty years of work in diversity and colleges, universities, and corporations, Frances Kendall candidly invites readers to think personally about how race-theirs and others'-frames experiences and relationships, focusing squarely on white privilege and its implications for building authentic relationships across race. This revised edition includes an extensive CD-Rom of "Tools for Understanding White Privilege," a guide for students, teachers, and facilitators on how to use the book more effectively in opening dialogues about white privilege. This rich resource includes suggestions for how to introduce key concepts, questions for deeper exploration (for class discussion and/or writing assignments), in-class exercises as well as out-of-class "experiments," and a list of other resources.
