The Racial Justice Film Series continues with "The House We Live In," the third and final installment of the PBS series "Race - The Power of an Illusion."
The "The House We Live In" is the first film about race to focus not on individual attitudes and behavior but on the ways our institutions and policies advantage some groups at the expense of others. Its subject is the "unmarked" race: white people. We see how benefits quietly and often invisibly accrue to white people, not necessarily because of merit or hard work, but because of the racialized nature of our laws, courts, customs, and perhaps most pertinently, housing.
Please join us following the film for a facilitated discussion.
