Teaching - Privileges

About Teaching

Does anyone here have any experience with teaching privilege theory? I've half prepared a short talk on it, and I've still got a couple of days to prepare, but I am afriad of missing something important, and I wonder what kind of questions is likely to come up too.


One more thing - I've been looking for information on the american white man who dressed as black and wrote a book on it later - I figured he'd make a nice example when it came to white privilege. But I can't remember his name or the name of his book. So let me know if you know!

i think the book you're thinking of might be Black Like Me. by...John Howard Griffen. AWESOME book. he actually didn't just dress like a black man, he had a sugical procedure to darken the pigmentation of his skin. :)

That's it, thank you! I intend to read that one day, but they probably don't have it at the local library in a smallish town in Norway... so it will have to wait. :o)
