Homeless to Hardward
91 minute video on DVD
A group of inner-city high school students from New York are visiting the campus of Harvard University. One of the students is homeless Liz Murray and, for her, the visit is a defining moment.

White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack By Peggy McIntosh, Ph.D.
An essay written about what it means and what it looks like when one benefits from white privilege. This article provides teachable moments to facilitate a discussion about white privilege and other forms of privilege. It has been used in workshops and classes throughout the United States and Canada for many years. While people of color have described for years how whites benefit from unearned privileges, this is one of the first articles written by a white person on the topics.

This is a copyrighted essay, please request copies from Coordinator of Diversity
