Book Discussion: “White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism”

4  Wednesdays:  Feb. 5, 12, 19, and 26, from 6:00 pm -- 8:00 p.m. FREE.

Over four consecutive sessions, join us to discuss “White Fragility”, by Robin Diangelo, a white author. The conversation will be intended for as a space for white folks to openly discuss the book, their own behaviors related to racism and white fragility, and how to meaningfully engage in antiracist work. People are encouraged to read the book in advance and bring their own reflections and questions. Each conversation will last two hours and the discussions will build upon one another. We hope, but not require, that folks plan to attend all four sessions. POC who attend have the option to listen to the conversation and do not have to speak unless it is their choice.

About the facilitators

Meg Stein is a visual artist and Jessica Ruhle is an arts educator. They are both interested in how works of art can provide an opportunity to discuss challenging topics, including racism. In their similar but different ways, they both create spaces to openly discuss and examine racism with friends, coworkers, and strangers.
