White Fragility: Moving Beyond The Echo Chamber for More Honest (and Effective) Conversations About Race | Nanette D. Massey

August 13 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

A slew of studies show that 75% of white folks in the US report only having regular contact with other white folks. This often results in an echo chamber when talking about race — continuing to lead with white frames of reference that can go unchallenged. This echoing appears as “doing this work” and substitutes for real activism.

Join us and author/educator Nanette D. Massey for a thought-provoking and real conversation about race and allyship within the context of Robin DiAngelo’s watershed book “White Fragility.” The goal is to leave audiences, regardless of racial background, with self-clarity and the ability to participate in conversations within their own personal spheres of influence with genuine confidence, humor, and humility. Whether you’re new to this kind of forum or you “marched in the sixties”, you’re promised an evening of candor and revelation.
