White Fragility

Course Description

Using Robin Diangelo's recently published book, White Fragility: Why It's So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism as our text, this class will seek an understanding of how being white shapes our perspectives, experiences and responses in conversations about race. We will discuss several key themes from Diangelo's book, including: the mythology of whiteness, the power of socialization and culture, implicit bias, the evolution of our language around racial comments. In addition, we will consider some new definitions of racism, prejudice, discrimination and white supremacy as the author applies them in our 21st century America.
