Seeing the Racial Waters with Dr. Robin DiAngelo
TUESDAY, JULY 9 at 2PM
Racism is arguably the most complex and nuanced social dilemma since the beginning of this country, and yet nothing in dominant society gives us (white people) the information we need to engage across race with nuance and complexity. We do of course develop opinions on racism, but without years of sustained study, struggle, focus, mistake-making and relationship building, our opinions are not informed. In this 3.5 hour workshops with Dr. DiAngelo we will explore topics including white socialization, systemic racism, breaking with white solidarity, the specific ways racism manifests for white progressives, safety versus comfort, the politics of emotions, and white fragility. This will be a combination of lecture, structured reflection, and small group discussion designed to provide a comprehensive system analysis and identify personal complicity.
