This class is open to all. The book is important, but if you cannot purchase it, you can still attend class, follow along, and find meaning. If you can obtain the book, please read Chapters 1 and 2 prior to the first class.
The focus of the book is on “white fragility,” defined by Author Robin DiAngelo as “the defensive moves that white people make when challenged racially; it is characterized by emotions such as anger, fear, and guilt, and by behaviors including argumentation and silence.” She goes on to say, “These behaviors, in turn, function to reinstate white racial equilibrium and prevent any meaningful cross-racial dialogue.”
This class and the suggested book will explore “how white fragility develops, how it protects racial inequality, and what we can do to engage more constructively.”
Each of us has a part to play in healing racial divisions. Let us come together to explore this topic in meaningful ways!
