Diversity Club: the Invisible Knapsack

This last diversity club we discussed power and privilege, and we used White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack by Peggy McIntosh as the reading. https://nationalseedproject.org/images/documents/Knapsack_plus_Notes-Peggy_McIntosh.pdf

After discussing enough to get people who didn’t have time to read thinking about things, we broke out in groups of 3 or 4 do have smaller discussion with these three prompts:

Round one: What are one or more ways in which you’ve had unearned disadvantage in your life?

Round two: What are one or more ways in which you’ve had unearned advantage in your life?

Round three: What is it like for you to sit here and talk about and hear about these experiences of unearned advantage and disadvantage?
