Forum: What's White Fragility?

Date: 
February 17, 2019 - 11:30am to 12:30pm

Join us as we explore the topic of “white fragility” with discussion leaders Kathleen Graham and Marie Dalton-Meyer. We will begin our conversation by watching an engaging 20-minute video featuring sociologist Robin DiAngelo, author of the book, White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism

We will then look at the term white fragility and our own relationship to bias, implicit bias and racism. Several AHCC/SUSO members will share what they learned at a workshop on DiAngelo’s book which was presented at Faith Congregational Church in November. We are hoping this introductory conversation will inspire more people to read the book and participate in further in-depth conversations on this important topic.
