BookWoman BookGroup Discussion: White Fragility-- on Zoom

Join us on Thursday, December 3rd to discuss White Fragility: Why It's So Hard for White People to Talk about Racism. The Zoom link is below.

New members are welcome! We typically meet on the 4th Thursday of the month, EXCEPT during the Holidays when we slide forward 1 week. Come join us!

Antiracist educator Robin DiAngelo deftly illuminates the phenomenon of white fragility and "allows us to understand racism as a practice not restricted to 'bad people' (Claudia Rankine). Referring to the defensive moves that white people make when challenged racially, white fragility is characterized by emotions such as anger, fear, and guilt, and by behaviors including argumentation and silence. These behaviors, in turn, function to reinstate white racial equilibrium and prevent any meaningful cross-racial dialogue. In this in-depth exploration, DiAngelo examines how white fragility develops, how it protects racial inequality, and what we can do to engage more constructively.
