February Book Club – White Fragility

Saturday, February 22 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk about Racism by Robin DiAngelo (Foreword by Michael Eric Dyson)

DiAngelo, a consultant and trainer for over 20 years on the issues of racial and social justice explores the concept of “white fragility”.  She defines this as “a state in which even a minimum amount of racial stress becomes intolerable, triggering a range of defensive moves.” The New Yorker stated “The value in (this book) lies in its methodical, irrefutable exposure of racism in thought and action, and its call for humility and vigilance.”
