Why It's So Hard to Talk About Racism

Zoom Webinar

Join us for this 90 minute webinar (60 minute presentation, 30 minute Q&A). Why is it so hard, particularly for white people, to talk about racism? Why are conversations about racism often met with anger, fear, and guilt, only to grind to a halt in awkward silence and avoidance? Sociologist and antiracism educator Robin DeAngelo labels these unhelpful responses as “white fragility.” What is “white fragility?” And how is it hindering our efforts to bend the moral arc of history toward justice? Until we recognize, acknowledge, and understand these paralyzing undercurrents, our highest aspirations for true American democracy, justice, and dignity remain unrealized.
