CURB at the White Privilege Conference

April 11, 2011

Cordell W. Riley and Lynne Winfield of Citizens Uprooting Racism in Bermuda (CURB) will be presenting a workshop titled “This Land is Whose Land? Gaining Economic Citizenship in Paradise” at the upcoming White Privilege Conference to be held in Minneapolis, Minnesota from April 13-16 at the Sheraton Bloomington Hotel. The workshop will focus on the historical development of White affirmative action in Bermuda since settlement in 1609, and the legal restrictions put into place to prevent Black economic empowerment. Furthermore, while some progress in economic development by Blacks has occurred, the workshop will reveal that the gulf between Bermuda’s two dominant races remains wide. Finally, participants will learn why the sole piece of legislation introduced by the first, Black-majority supported Government in 2007 led to White opposition and was eventually scrapped.
