Film Documentary – White Like Me

September 9, 2017 - 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

We will join together on Saturday, September 9, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. for a showing of the film, discussion, and a concluding Havdalah ritual.

According to the film’s website, the documentary “explores race and racism in the U.S. through the lens of whiteness and white privilege. In a stunning reassessment of the American ideal of meritocracy and claims that we’ve entered a post-racial society, Wise offers a fascinating look back at the race-based white entitlement programs that built the American middle class, and argues that our failure as a society to come to terms with this legacy of white privilege continues to perpetuate racial inequality and race-driven political resentments today.”
