VIDEO: What is 'brown privilege'?

"We always hear about white privilege, but what about brown privilege?"

It's a concept that IFC16 & 17 alumna Nancy Méndez-Booth unpacks in her newest piece. Many of you saw her perform the monologue for the first time at Bloom In Full Color in March. After being laid off from her corporate job, La Nancy goes through a period of soul searching and career drifting, during which she discovers the humiliation -- and privilege -- of being brown.
