Leaders are Readers Virtual Book Club February 2021 - White Fragility


Zoom Meeting  
Thursday, February 11, 2021 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM   Add to Calendar UTC

Studies have long shown a connection between professional success and reading habits. In addition to helping us broaden our perspectives, books can literally give us somewhere to go when we must stay where we are. During this time of expanded quarantines and social distancing, #HBAMidAtlantic is committed to helping our members stay connected through virtual networking and professional development offerings like our virtual book club. This is a monthly Book Club with meetings every second Thursday of the month, this is for members only, and members can register for the books discussion they are most interested in. This month, we are discussing White Fragility: Why It's So Hard for White People to Talk about Racism as part of our region’s commitment to advancing the crucial dialogue of social injustice while providing us all a space to listen, ask questions, share experiences and learn together. https://robindiangelo.com/publications/ Within HBA, we stand against discrimination and inequality. We stand for diversity and parity. Racism has no part in a united force for change. Join the conversation! Amazon.com Review: The New York Times best-selling book exploring the counterproductive reactions white people have when their assumptions about race are challenged, and how these reactions maintain racial inequality. In this “vital, necessary, and beautiful book” (Michael Eric Dyson), antiracist educator Robin DiAngelo deftly 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.

Amazon.com Review:
The New York Times best-selling book exploring the counterproductive reactions white people have when their assumptions about race are challenged, and how these reactions maintain racial inequality.

In this “vital, necessary, and beautiful book” (Michael Eric Dyson), antiracist educator Robin DiAngelo deftly 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.
