Between A Silver Spoon and The Struggle: Reflections on the Intersection of Racism and Class Privilege

Through a mix of political analysis and personal reflection, Between a Silver Spoon and the Struggle explores the nuances and contradictions faced by people of color with wealth. With wit and compassion,Nicole Lewis takes on the myth of the American Dream, how to identify one’s own class privilege, and first steps towards building financial literacy and becoming a donor to progressive social change.

Written in the style of a candid field organizer, this slim book is a gem you will want to keep under your pillow, and to read and reflect on questions like "How much money do I need to have a healthy, sustainable life?" or,  “What is my responsibility to my communities?”

It's an insightful and quick read for people of all races and class backgrounds, who are interested in understanding the intersection of racial oppression and class privilege more deeply.

Praxis Groups

Praxis groups are small, confidential groups of people in RG who meet monthly to build relationships and trust through regular meetings, storytelling, reading, knowledge sharing, and mutual support and challenge. With a foundation created by sharing stories, participants take turns workshopping each others' questions and challenges related to racial justice, wealth, and class privilege, and gain insight for themselves on the discussion topics they bring to the group. In addition, monthly meetings serve as a monthly check-in on action steps and help participants move forward with their personal commitments.

This year Bay Area RG is offering several praxis groups: one for people of color with wealth, one for Jews with wealth, and another group for white people with wealth. In our effort to build on our commitment to racial justice, these praxis groups will provide a space for participants to dig into the intersection of race and class on personal and systemic levels.
