White Fragility Workshop

2007 Frankford Ave.
Philadelphia, PA 19125

The Circle Mobilizing because Black Lives Matter team is hosting a workshop on the book White Fragility. We encourage you to read the book before coming! We have a limited amount of books available at the congregations so folks are welcome to also purchase their books online. Facebook event here.

White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism was written by antiracist educator Robin DiAngelo who, in this book, illuminates the phenomenon of white fragility and “allows us to understand racism as a practice not restricted to ‘bad people’ (Claudia Rankine). Referring to the defensive moves that white people make when challenged racially, white fragility is characterized by emotions such as anger, fear, and guilt, and by behaviors including argumentation and silence. These behaviors, in turn, function to reinstate white racial equilibrium and prevent any meaningful cross-racial dialogue. In this in-depth exploration, DiAngelo examines how white fragility develops, how it protects racial inequality, and what we can do to engage more constructively.
