White Fragility: Continuing Conversations, February 1, 2016 at 7 pm

Why is it so hard for white people to talk about racism?

Robin DiAngelo writes that white people “move through a wholly racialized world with an unracialized identity (e.g. white people can represent all of humanity, people of color can only represent their racial selves).  Challenges to this identity become highly stressful and even intolerable.” How do we recognize this in others and ourselves, and what do we about it?

We will examine these questions more closely at our Continuing Conversation on Race and White Privilege this coming Monday, February 1, 2016 at the Princeton Public Library, 65 Witherspoon Street from 7:00 to 8:30 pm. to listen, learn, and talk openly with others striving to move racial justice forward.  Never been?  Come at 6:45 pm to ask any questions you may have about the process. Bring a friend!
