Interrupting Privilege
For residence at the Northwest African American Museum, Seattle, WA

“Interrupting Privilege” is an intergenerational, skills-building, anti-racism space of dialogue and critique that is both research project and class. “Interrupting Privilege” argues that everyday people can work together across generations to combat racism with the support of youth leadership, commitment to critique-in-action, spaces to share and hear racial hurt, and careful training modules. “Interrupting Privilege” will move from the University of Washington to Seattle's Black community hub, the Northwest African American Museum (NAAM), in order to center the perspectives of African Americans.
