Special Event, Thursday April 8! RACE AND POLITICS – Checking Your Privilege? Perspectives on the Politics of White Identity
Lambertville Library is excited to be hosting an event featuring speakers from the University of Pennsylvania, in a discussion from their Race and Politics Series. Part one was hosted by UPenn last week, when four panelists addressed the question: “What kind of politics are enabled by the study of white identity and/or white privilege?” Does studying white identity help or hinder the realization of greater racial equality? There’s more information here, including links to preparatory essays by the four speakers.
On Thursday, April 8, from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM, Lambertville Library is delighted to host one of those panelists, Hadass Silver along with Katie Rader. Silver is a Doctorate Candidate in Political Science, University of Pennsylvania and an organizer with the Philadelphia Democratic Socialists of America. In her research she discusses how we ought to frame our discussions of race to encourage solidarity and prioritize policy reform over symbolic gestures. Katie Rader is also a Doctoral Candidate at the University of Pennsylvania. In her teaching and research, she focuses on historical struggles for equality pursued by civil rights organizations and labor unions.
