Book Club: White Fragility

In the past week, protests have erupted across the United States and in major Canadian cities in In the past week, protests have erupted across the United States and in major Canadian cities in response to the police murder of George Floyd on May 25, 2020.

Floyd’s murder follows the deaths of Breonna Taylor in March, murdered by Kentucky police, and Ahmaud Arbery in February, who was shot by white men while jogging.

In light of these recent events as well as in acknowledgement of the ongoing history of anti-Black racism, The Centre for Intercultural Engagement and TCDC invite you to join in a discussion about Robin DiAngelo’s White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk about Racism. DiAngelo’s text focuses on recognizing and unlearning the behaviors and attitudes that whiteness instills.

In the foreword, Michael Eric Dyson writes,”White Fragility is a vital, necessary, and beautiful book, a bracing call to white folk everywhere to see their whiteness for what it is and to seize opportunity to make things better now.”

Please, Zoom in on Wednesday, June 24, 2020 from 1:00pm to 2:00 pm  and join members of the Centre for Intercultural Engagement and TCDC to discuss Di Angelo’s book.

First 10 registrants will receive an e-book.
