Facilitated Discussions Prompted By White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk about Racism
By Robin DiAngelo

“whites are operating under the false assumption that we can’t simultaneously be good people and participate
in racism” (p.49)

And also by the November 3 Sermon:

“White People Have Work To Do”

Please sign up at Social Hours in October or by signing up here: https://tinyurl.com/y59hjbeq or by contacting the office

You’re invited to join the discussion even if you haven’t read the book with this title. We will be focused on issues raised both by this best-selling book and related topics that Rev. Rachael will explore in her sermon on November 3. The book is available at bookstores and libraries or you can seek a loaner copy from the office.

Did you know the author has a local connection? She was once a tenured professor at Westfield State University and mentions a very local example of racist talk in her book.
