Join us to view and discuss “The House We Live In,” one of the films in the series “Race: The Power of an Illusion”, which provides strong background information about how we got to where we are today regarding “race” in this country.

The House We Live In is the first film about race to focus not on individual attitudes and behavior but on the ways our institutions and policies advantage some groups at the expense of others. Its subject is the “unmarked” race: white people. We see how benefits quietly and often invisibly accrue to white people, not necessarily because of merit or hard work, but because of the racialized nature of our laws, courts, customs, and perhaps most pertinently, housing.
