Date Change for Diversity Book Club Meeting: White Fragility by Robin DiAngelo
This event was mistakenly scheduled on the date of the Kassabian Conference. The new date for this meetup is December 7, 2019 | 2:00-4:00.
Discussant: Tamara Pincus
On behalf of the GWSCSW Diversity Committee meet-ups, you are invited to a discussion of White Fragility by Robin DiAngelo. We will explore issues around whiteness including why it is so hard for white people to own their experiences of racial privilege, how we can help white people become more open to accountability around things they may have said or done that are racist, and how we can identify white racial solidarity when it is enacted around us. We know that this discussion will not be comfortable but we will support each other through the difficult feelings that do come up. Ideally, you’ll have read the book but if you didn’t get all the way through it’s OK. Come anyway.
No cost to attend and snacks will be provided.
