This all-ages book club is for white folks to work at undoing white supremacy and the dismantling of racism. We encourage everyone to work in multiracial groups outside of this book club - which is what it takes to make progress - but also acknowledge that it's neccessary for white folks to discuss issues separately so as not to place undue burden on people of color or add trauma as we unpack our assumptions, undo our social conditioning, and work on blindspots. We meet the fourth Saturday of every month. For questions, email sweet pea.
This month, we'll discuss White Fragility: Why It's So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism by Robin DiAngelo, available at King's or below. For the audiobook, click here. You can also watch this video of her appearance in Tacoma in 2018 or read this essay. Whatever your media preference and whatever time you spare to prepare, just show up. We will create a supportive space as we dive deep into our personal work fighting white supremacy and racism.
