Understanding White Privilege:
Creating Pathways to Authentic Relationships Across Race

Soft Cover, 200 pages
Author: Frances E. Kendall

Frances Kendall is a nationally known consultant who has focused for more than thirty years on organizational change and communication, specializing in issues of diversity and social justice.  Because she believes that personal and organizational change is possible, she is committed to facilitating the core changes necessary to create work and learning environments that are hospitable to all people.  She doesn't skirt the deeper challenges inherent in helping organizations accomplish that mission.

Racial privilege is hard to see for those who were born with access to power and resources. Yet it is very visible for those to whom it was not granted. In Understanding White Privilege, the author has created an excellent text to help explore the nature and implications of white privilege and how to become an ally for change. The insights in this book are particularly helpful to those who want to work effectively in multiracial settings.

Inviting readers to think personally about how race -- theirs and others' -- frames experiences, relationships, and the way we each see the world, Understanding White Privilege focuses squarely on white privilege and its implications by offering specific suggestions for what we each can do to bridge the racial chasm.
