"Whiteness refers to the construction of the white race, white culture, and the system of privileges and advantages afforded to white people," a definition on the school's event page reads.
The month of April will be dedicated to the project, which "seeks to inspire innovative and practical solutions to community issues and social problems that stem from racism," the school said.
Among the questions that will be asked:
What is whiteness and how is it socially constructed?
In what ways does whiteness emerge from a legacy of imperialism, conquest, colonialism and the American enterprise?
Who benefits from the consequences of whiteness? Who loses from whiteness? How?
What are alternatives to the culture of white supremacy?
What are approaches and strategies to dismantling whiteness?

I for one am proud to be white (American Indian, but white) and I know many others are as well.
