White Fragility book cover
In the book White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism, professor Robin DiAngelo explains the phenomenon of white fragility, the counterproductive reactions white people have when their assumptions about race are challenged. Drawing on research and twenty years’ experience as a consultant and trainer on issues of racial and social justice issues, DiAngelo explores how white fragility develops, how it protects racial inequality, and what we can do to engage more constructively. She discusses her own white privilege in a forthright manner that invites the reader to do the same.

Join us for a discussion of the book on February 19, 2020 at 6:00 pm at the River Park Branch Library, 2022 E. Mishawaka Avenue, South Bend. Terri L. Russ will moderate the discussion, which is sponsored by the St. Joseph County Public Library’s Relevant Reads and the League of Women Voters’ Read IN with the League. Space is limited and registration in advance is required.

Free and open to the public with advance registration. This discussion is now full. Please click to place your name on the waitlist https://sjcpl.libnet.info/event/3799730. Registration is required.
