The Book of White People

In case it isn’t obvious, this is a crucial time in American history to better understand the power and privilege of whiteness. The Book of White People, an exhibit at BOOM Concepts by local artist Christiane Dolores, examines the effect whiteness has on both white people and people of color. The multimedia collection includes a symbolically heavy crown hanging from the ceiling, an actual book for visitors to share their experiences with whiteness, and a mock fireplace representing the burning of sportswear in the name of Colin Kaepernick. The exhibit is introspective and interactive, but also tackles a thorny topic with humor.
