Meaningful Movies Presents: 'White Like Me'
White Like Me is Tim Wise's acclaimed primer on white privilege. Exploring race and racism in the U.S. through the lens of whiteness, Wise's history lessons dismantle the myth of meritocracy and the "postracial" society.
The film looks into race-based white entitlement programs that shaped the American middle class and how our failure to come to terms with its legacy continues to perpetuate inequality. Check out the trailer and bring a friend or two.

Join him at Town Hall on Monday as he reflects on Obama’s last two terms and gives foreign policy suggestions for the presidential successor, just in time for the 2016 elections. Hillary supporters may especially want to attend this one!
