NOTHING BUT A MESSAGE OF INCLUSION
A  PRESENTATION
2018-2019


NOTHING BUT A MESSAGE OF INCLUSION demands  ’presentness’ — the presence of the audience in real time, and content that sharply reflects the present.

NOTHING BUT A MESSAGE OF INCLUSION
demands an ’inclusive’ space —

This presentation is a critical examination of some everyday particles - the dress, the body and the body on move.

”I can turn on the television or open to the front page of the paper and see people of my race widely represented.
If I want to, I can be pretty sure of finding a publisher for this piece on white privilege.

Whether I use cheques, credit cards or cash, I can count on my skin colour not to work against the appearance of financial reliability.
I can swear, or dress in second-hand clothes, or not answer letters, without having people attribute these choices to the bad morals, the poverty or the illiteracy of my race.

I am never asked to speak for all the people of my racial group."

The above is a selection from a list drawn up by Peggy McIntosh of forty-six "[s]pecial circumstances and conditions I experience which I did not earn but which I have been made to feel are mine by birth, by citizenship, and by virtue of being a conscientious law-abiding ‘normal’ person of goodwill.”
