Assignment on 5/10/2017

1.    Please read all five chapters of Part 2 in your book, pp 30-63.
2.    Do some reflecting and journaling along with your reading. However, don’t feel like you need to answer all the reflection questions at the end of each section.
3.    Be aware of “whiteness” as you go through the week.  Just be mindful of how your own whiteness affects your day to day experiences. Ask yourself, How would this experience be different if I were a person of color?  How is this thing designed for whites?
