Exploring White Fragility
A 4-week workshop
Ann Kunze and Bek Wheeler
UUFP members and friends, please join us for a workshop/discussion group exploring DiAngelo’s book White Fragility. This exploration is sponsored under the UUFP Racial Justice Program.
Description: Over four Wednesdays this fall, we will explore and discuss Robin DiAngelo’s work White Fragility: Why It's So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism, supplemented with other short readings on “how to have difficult conversations.” This workshop will foster open, candid discussion of views, questions, thoughts, perceptions—you know, an open forum where we all engage in “a responsible search for truth and meaning.” Workshop will be limited to 15 participants.
a) White Fragility by Robin DiAngelo (Director of Religious Education Joanne Dingus will purchase 10 copies for participants.)
Very short (1 – 3 page) resources on how to explore difficult topics and how to disagree!
b) ”How to Disagree” (Sermon by Rev. Andrew Millard)
c) “Having Difficult Conversations” (Alban Institute)
d) "How to Stay Open and Curious in Hard Conversations" (Thanks to the Social & Environmental Justice Committee.)
e) Beacon Press Reading Guide for White Fragility
Sign-up sheet: is here.
Dates: Four sessions, 1st and 3rd Wednesdays: 9/21, 10/5, 10/19, 11/2
Time: 7-8:30 PM
Location: While we will have a Zoom option available, if needed, we dearly hope we’ll all meet in person at the fellowship!
