Mirrors of privilege : making whiteness visible( Visual )

4 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 587 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This film advances the argument that with transformative learning, a dialogue for learning, changing, healing, and undoing race-based oppression can begin. It features the experiences and stories of White women and men who are social justice advocates. They have worked to gain insight into what it means, as White people, to challenge notions of race, racism, culture, and White identity development in the United States. Their shared reflections speak to the denial, defensiveness, guilt, fear, and shame often related to these issues and show how these responses can be replaced with solid commitments towards racial justice. The film uses art, theatre, movement, photographs, and music to amplify stories that share richly varied experiences and life processes informed by deep reflection and social justice action. The individuals' interviews are also enhanced by historical sources, spoken word, photographs, and video archives which serve to address systemic racist oppression

Designed for dialogue and learning, Cracking the codes : the system of racial inequity works to disentangle internal beliefs within, as it builds skills to recognize and address the external drivers of inequity"--From the container
