What is Privilege?

If you have not been in an uncomfortable conversation about privilege in the past two years- where have you been? Privilege, arguably the 'golden thread' in the coat of ignorance and abstinence too many in our nation wear- is never going to be an easy topic for discourse. But we need to move from ease towards necessity and this video does just that. It dives into the idea of defining privilege by drawing from various experiences, backgrounds and voices. Not one encounter with privilege is ever the same and it is indeed the importance of this diversity that this video aims to celebrate. It unearths the broad spectrum of systematic inequalities that are faced and salutes the notion that it is exactly that- a spectrum not a hierarchy. It sees young people waking up and making noise in the right places.

Innovative and introspective.

It will undoubtedly make you want to "check your privilege" and if you don't know what that means then welcome, you are in the right place.
