White Fragility: Recognizing and Resisting Racist Responses

White Fragility: WHy It's so Hard for WHite People to Talk About Racism

On Sunday, February 3, from 1:15 to 3:30 pm, please join us in the Cottage to discuss anti-racist educator Robin DiAngelo’s new book, White Fragility. We will share our responses to the author’s perspectives on implicit bias and structural racism, and explore the unconscious strategies that white folks may engage in to defend against the notion that they are complicit.

From author, academic and preacher Michael Eric Dyson: “A vital, necessary and beautiful book, a bracing call to white folk everywhere to see their whiteness for what it is and to seize the opportunity to make things better now.”

Poet and playwright Claudia Rankine writes that the book “brings language to the emotional structures that make true discussions about racial attitudes difficult.” Books are available for purchase at the Lifespan RE table. 156 pp. All are welcome!

For further information, contact Roberta Frye or Audrey Lyness.
