We will discuss this short Protected content Protected content film "Not Quite White: Arabs, Slavs, and the Contours of Contested Whiteness" directed by Jamil Khoury and Stephen Combs. This film is "dedicated to a vision of whiteness that is anti-racist and rooted in economic justice. Not Quite White expands the American conversation on race by zeroing in on whiteness as a constructed social and political category". Although this film is now 8 years old, the topic is especially relevant today. There are many among us who would say "I am not Black but I am not White either"; let's discuss this topic together.

Please watch the film, on your own, prior to our discussion.
