About the Event: Join IRRPP and the Sociology Department for this event where Margaret Hagerman will discuss her new book White Kids: Growing Up With Privilege in a Racially Divided America".

This talk offers new insights on racial socialization processes in affluent, white families and considers the role that white children and families play in the reproduction of racism and racial inequality in the United States.
