Filmmaker and Executive Director of World Trust Educational Services, Inc., Dr. Shakti Butler will be premiering her latest documentary, Mirrors of Privilege: Making Whiteness Visible - a must-see for all people who are interested in justice, spiritual growth and community making. It features the experiences of white women and men who have worked to gain insight into what it means to challenge notions of racism and white supremacy in the United States.

The participants’ up-close and personal reflections provide access into their journeys of learning and transformation. Their conversations reveal what is often required to expose the denial, defensiveness, guilt, fear and shame that helps keep systemic racism in place. The result of this type of work demonstrates the skills and capacities needed to make solid commitments towards building racial justice. Dr. Butler’s work moves conversations beyond black and white and speaks to the interconnectedness of racism, classism, sexism, and homophobia.

Tickets are available by emailing worldtrust [at] earthlink.net, or from these local bookstores: (East Bay) Black Oak Books, Pendragon, Marcus Books and Walden Pond. (San Francisco) Marcus Books and City Lights.

This event will be ASL Interpreted, is wheelchair accessible and a brief reception will follow.
