Have you been wanting to take a deeper dive into white privilege, what it means, and where it comes from? Are you wanting to understand more about systemic racism and white supremacy?
This book takes a critical look into these topics and others. It explores the counterproductive reactions white people have when their assumptions about race are challenged and how these reactions maintain racial inequality. Anti-racist 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). 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.
This 7-session journey over 10 weeks will provide a safe space to learn, challenge our old ways of thinking, gain insight, and grow.
