The phrase “check your privilege” has become common in popular discourse over the last decade. But do we really understand what “privilege” means? Join us April 7 for the next livestream in our #AskOBI series to hear from Professor Emerita Stephanie M. Wildman and Associate Professor Margalynne Armstrong, authors of the new edition of “Privilege Revealed,” in conversation with Othering & Belong Institute at UC Berkeley Director john a. powell. Facilitated by scholar and advocate Adam Ryan Chang, they’ll discuss what has changed—and what hasn’t—in the 25 years since the book was first released, and why understanding “privilege” still remains critical to our movements for justice today.
