Second National Conference on Whiteness
Cambridge, MA
November 1997

In November 1997 we shortended the name of the event. The now-named second National Conference on Whiteness took place in Cambridge, Massachusetts. At this point The CSWAC was joined by the Women's Theological Center; Community Change, Inc.; and S.P.A.R.C., all from the Boston area, and by Partnership Against Racism from Chicago (who returned as a sponsor from the first conference). In the wake of our first conference, several other conferences, including the Berkeley event, had taken place. We drew 300 people at the second conference and continued our history of leadership in raising the dialogue about whiteness in the United States and the world.
