Mirrors of Privilege [videorecording]: Making Whiteness Visible

directed by Shakti Butler and Rick Butler ; produced by Shakti Butler ; theatre director, John Scott
Format
Video; DVD
Summary
This film advances the argument that with transformative learning, a dialogue for learning, changing, healing, and undoing race-based oppression can begin. It features the experiences and stories of White women and men who are social justice advocates. They have worked to gain insight into what it means, as White people, to challenge notions of race, racism, culture and White identity development in the United States. Their shared reflections speak to the denial, defensiveness, guilt, fear and shame often related to these issues and show how these responses can be replaced with solid commitments towards racial justice.
