Webster University, located outside St. Louis, is considering a segregated safe space for white students to talk about their racism and white privilege.
The school's new chief diversity officer says they may create a whites-only safe space for Caucasian students. In the segregated space, students would talk about their white privilege and work out their inner racism.
Chief Diversity Officer Vincent Flewellen got the idea for the new program from the bookWitnessing Whiteness: The Need to Talk About Race and How to Do It. He organized the program at Washington University when he was director of equity and inclusion there.
