White Fragility: A Book Discussion DEI2109


Thursday, August 20, 2020 - Thursday, October 1, 2020


8:00am - 10:30am


Online Webinar


As the current environment makes clear, there is a need for everyone to join the anti-racism effort and to become more aware of their own contribution, both positive and negative. This book discussion will provide a venue for individuals to consider the historical impacts of systemic racism and white privilege; and how to move the needle from an issue for Black people to solve to asking what role white people must play for change to occur.


Anyone who would like to understand why it’s difficult for white people to talk about racism and how we all can approach racial discussions with humility and courage
