We Need to Talk: What is White Privilege?

On Tuesday, Oct. 27, at 6:30 p.m., Justyn Pippins, SCORE Southwest Missouri Diversity Chair, will host a conversation exploring white privilege – what it is and what we can do when we recognize it. Presented in partnership with the Springfield NAACP.

In upcoming installments of We Need to Talk, a host will guide an informal conversation and finish the session with a discussion of how you can put what you’ve learned into action in your own life and community.
