Led by Sara Gondwe

White Like Me by Tim Wise, will spark an introduction to a four-part discussion of our own personal journey through our white-privileged society and how that privilege has been at the expense of others. Told through a memoir, Wise uses stories instead of statistics to inspire and challenge the reader. Bring your own lunch.
