(CAMPUS REFORM) -- A Missouri school is considering a segregated safe space for white students to talk about their racism and white privilege.
Vincent Flewellen, chief diversity officer at Webster University in St. Louis, has plans for a new program based off a book, titled, “Witnessing Whiteness: The Need to Talk About Race and How to Do It." The local Young Women Christian Association (YWCA) began the "Witnessing Whiteness" program, which requires participants to be white. If brought to Webster University, the workshop would launch in late 2019.
"I have not had an opportunity to fully explore the possibility. Should we move to bring the program onto campus, it would not be before August of this year," Flewellen said, according to Webster University's student newspaper, the Webster Journal.
