The White Feather Project

There have been several recent hate crimes on the campus of Ursinus College, with much of the white student population unaware, and much of the white administration actively looking over their existence. A willful, comfortable cowardice permeates this institution, and The White Feather Project aims to address this cowardice within the frame of racial stress. 

On this site you'll find more information about The White Feather Project, a blog by the creators  documenting its processes and challenges, and an extensive reading list of texts, articles, and media concerning racism, white fragility, and cowardice.

The project continues beyond 2019. If you or your institution would like to conduct a White Feather Project, please contact the team at
