Robin DiAngelo: White Fragility

Robin DiAngelo grew up poor and white, and has built her life’s work around examining the way race shapes society. After coining the term “white fragility” in an article, she went on to pen a best-selling book of the same name with a subheading Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Race. DiAngelo will present on the socialization that inculcates white fragility, the ways it has historically reinstated white equilibrium and skills needed so that white people can engage more constructively across race.
