Poor Whites and the Paradox of Privilege

Time: 3:00 pm-5:00 pm


This talk focuses on the way we DON'T talk about poverty in the U.S. Poor white folk are the largest poverty group in the country, yet they are seldom presented in the media or in conversations about marginalization. My work looks at how poor whites carve out their paradoxical identity within the glowing assumption of white privilege.

Presenter: Dr. Kirby Moss, Journalism
