#AmherstChatback: Crazy Rich POC Dialogue

We're back! Join the Office of Diversity and Inclusion for the first dialogue in a 7-week series. This event is open to all students and lunch provided. What does wealth look like among people of color beyond sports, sitcoms and celebrities? How do we challenge dominant conversations that suggest race and class are mutually exclusive while acknowledging class privilege among people of color? Inspired by the summer blockbuster film, “Crazy Rich Asians” our first dialogue will focus on common misconceptions about upper/middle class people of color and the ways they show up in our everyday lives.
