The Portland Underground Grad School offers classes in a variety of topics from history to improv comedy. This fall, PUGS is once again offering a course called “Interrogating Whiteness: An American Unstory.” We hear from Sarah DeYoreo, the Portland writer and educator who teaches the class, about what it means to critically examine white racial identity.
