Why is it so difficult to talk about race?
March 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Not In Our Town Princeton (NIOTPrinceton) will hold a series of discussions on the best-selling book “White Fragility,” by sociologist Robin DiAngelo, to explore this question.
Based on her years of experience holding workshops and teaching cultural diversity and social justice, DiAngelo clearly describes the difficulty white people have engaging in conversations about race and racism. She suggests ways to gain “racial stamina” to participate without getting defensive, feeling angry, or withdrawing altogether.
Everyone is welcome to participate in any or all of the four programs, to be led by social justice activists Patricia Deeney and Jim Weber. NIOT Princeton is a multi-racial, multi-faith group of individuals who stand together for racial justice and inclusive communities.
April 1 at 7 p.m., Continuing Conversation on Race, Princeton Public Library, 65 Witherspoon St., Princeton
April 10, 17, and 24 at 7 p.m. at the Princeton Municipal Building Community Room, 400 Witherspoon Street.
