White Fragility Book Discussion
“White people apparently don’t understand socialization because we believe that we can be exempt from this system just because we say we are or see ourselves that way.”
“If you can’t think critically about racism, then you’re not prepared to just raise your children to think critically about racism.”
“Being for social justice is virtually meaningless without strategic intentional action.” — Dr. Robin DiAngelo
In Dr. Robin DiAngelo’s book, White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism, DiAngelo describes how racism is a white people problem. She describes how difficult it is for white people to face their role in perpetuating racism and are reluctant to talk about it. So, let’s talk about it! Kathy will facilitate a discussion of DiAngelo’s best selling book on April 8th at 10:00 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. in the Saegmuller Room. If you are interested in joining the evening discussion via Zoom, please contact Kathy and she will set that up.
