Join us to watch a YouTube lecture by sociologist Robin DiAngelo discussing her best-selling book, White Fragility. We will be showing the video on Thursday, August 29th at 6 pm. Afterwards, we’ll discuss this timely concept that the author says prevents white people from talking about racism. DiAngelo believes that “white progressives cause the most damage to people of color.” We fail to see our own complicity, as we have been socialized by a white supremacist society. Very few of us are exempt from a lifetime of racist conditioning.

Do these words challenge your beliefs about yourself? Do these words make sense to you? Please come hear this timely talk and engage in a discussion about what we can do as white people to address our own fragility and counter white supremacy in our lives. This event is sponsored by the Racial Justice Action Team.
