PRIVILEGE and entitlement are trigger words – especially for white people on matters of race. The dynamics of privilege underlie all forms of oppression. Its many facets shape our sense of self and our interactions with others. Yet it is often those who benefit most from their privileged status who are least aware of the concepts, and who are most likely to take offense at the terms.

Ian Woods was invited to talk at Baldwin Wallace University's Bach Festival earlier this spring.



U.S. Quakers in the late 19th and early 20th centuries engaged in social and political reform activities that included intervening in U.S. insular policy discourses. Hicksite Quaker Albert K. Smiley, a rather unknown Social gospeller, contributed to such national policy debates by providing a communal democratic space for engaging in what Figueroa calls 'political ecumenism.'
