Your blog post for this week can be posted anytime before 9 a.m. on Sunday, Feb 19th.
In the course of my own research this week, I came across an NPR report on the controversy triggered by a series of posters and billboards in Duluth Minnesota created as part of a campaign to bring awareness of white privilege to the local populations in the wake of racially motivated violence and in response to the information that Duluth, largely Caucasian, is not considered a welcoming environment for minorities. For this week, visit the UnfairCampsign.org website, and visit the RESOURCES section to see the three posters created. Read the section ABOUT the origins of the campaign, and for your blog post, prepare your own assessment of the potential effects of the campaign posters in effectively prompting a greater awareness of the workings of white privilege as structural racism.
Enjoy your three days without classes, Liz Constable
