Being John Doe

Everyone knows it’s different strokes for different folks. But what if your view of the world isn’t so much about where you come from as it is what you come from? At the ongoing workshop series The Perks and Perils of Prvilege, ASU Project Humanities looks at how individual experiences dictate social or political choices, from voter and marriage rights to immigration and healthcare. In these workshops participants will share, learn, and reflect on the experiences that guide both the complementary and the contrasting choices of others.

The Perks and Perils of Privilege presented by Allison Parker of African American Literature, Rhetoric, and Women and Gender Studies at South Mountain Community College will take place from 6 to 8:30 p.m. on Monday, July 14, at Pomegranate Cafe, 4025 East Chandler Boulevard, Suite 28. Admission is free. For details and a look at future workshops, visit or call 480-727-7030.
