"White Fragility" Reading and Discussion Interest Form

Please use this form to indicate your interest in participating in reading and discussing the book by Robin DiAngelo called White Fragility: Why it's So Hard for White people to Talk about Racism. You can use this form to order a copy of the book. We will take part in a 3-part discussion and learning program focused on the book to take place over the summer or in the early fall. For now, the summer version of these sessions are scheduled for Wednesday evenings, 7-8:30, July 10, 24, & 31.

About the book:

Antiracist educator Robin DiAngelo first coined the term “white fragility” in 2011, and since then it’s been invoked by critics from Samantha Bee to Charles Blow. “White fragility” refers to the defensive moves that white people make when challenged racially. These include emotions such as anger, fear, and guilt, and behaviors including argumentation and silence. In this book, DiAngelo unpacks white fragility, explaining the underlying sociological phenomena. She draws on examples from her work and scholarship, as well as from the culture at large, to address these fundamental questions: How does white fragility develop? What does it look like? How is it triggered? What can we do to move beyond white fragility and engage more constructively?
