Book Study, White Fragility: Why it’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism
In preparation for a potential partnership in dialogue and service around the issue of race next spring, everyone is encouraged to read and discuss the book White Fragility: Why it’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism. On four consecutive Wednesday evenings this fall, we will gather together to discuss what we have read and learned during our Wednesday Study sessions on October 9, 16, 23, and 30 at 6:00 PM.
Robin DiAngelo, anti-racist educator, following an in-depth study wrote her book which examines how white fragility develops, how it protects racial inequality, and what can be done to engage one another more constructively.
Books may be ordered through the church for the discounted price of $10. You may use the link below to order your copy. Even if you cannot participate in the discussion, we encourage you to get and read this book. We will take notes on various broad questions and discussion points at our sessions for anyone who is interested in them. Scholarship funding is available.
