We will be discussing the book White Like Me by Tim Wise.

White Like Me, based on the work of acclaimed anti-racist educator and author Tim Wise, 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.

Come join the discussion. is group may be a pilot group for further Social Justice events at the UUFN.

All people are welcome, not just white people.

This will take several sessions to accomplish our goal.

Come and grow with our Adult RE Program.

If you don’t have time to read the book try viewing “White Like Me” on YouTube. You are still welcome to attend!
