Book Discussion: "White Fragility: Why It's So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism"

Join Chicago Women In Philanthropy’s Racial Equity and Social Justice Committee for lunch and conversation on "White Fragility: Why It's So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism." (Lunch is on us!)

This is part of a series of programs, conversations, and resources provided by the Racial Equity and Social Justice Committee. This one-time moderated book discussion follows our December 7 program, "How Diversity Trainings Go Wrong" which generated a lot of conversation and reflection.

Members of the larger philanthropic and nonprofit community, including people of all genders, are encouraged to be part of the conversation, even if they have not read the book. The book can be purchased via the following:

The first 10 people to register for the event will be reimbursed for the cost of the book.

Moderator: Christina Bourné, Assistant Director of Development, All Stars Project of Chicago

About the book: The New York Times best-selling book explores the counterproductive reactions white people have when their assumptions about race are challenged, and how these reactions maintain racial inequality.  In this in-depth exploration, Robin DiAngelo deftly illuminates the phenomenon of white fragility and examines how white fragility develops, how it protects racial inequality, and what we can each do to engage more constructively. 

About the Author: Robin J. DiAngelo is an American academic, lecturer, and an antiracist educator working in the fields of critical discourse analysis and whiteness studies. She is known for her work on white fragility, a term which she coined in 2011. In addition to teaching classes, she frequently gives seminars discussing racism, which she argues is embedded throughout America's political systems and culture.
