Introduction to Breaking White Silence
Sunday, April 14, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Explore what it means to be white and the ramifications of remaining silent in the face of injustice.
We will focus on the history of the Breaking White Silence project as well as some core understandings about racism. This session will include interactive conversation as well as information, time for questions, and a resources handout.
Everyone is welcome (no need to pre-register or RSVP).
Breaking White Silence project: White people for Racial Justice and Social Justice
Breaking White Silence, a project of the PNA, is designed to educate white people on the structures and patterns of racism—and raise our consciousness about our own socialized patterns—by forming free, facilitated study groups to read and discuss Dr. Robin DiAngelo’s What Does It Mean to Be White?: Developing White Racial Literacy (Revised Edition).
Dr. DiAngelo is a race and social justice educator and author of the 2018 New York Times best-selling book White Fragility. Her work has been featured at the Seattle Public Library and in Salon, NPR, Slate, and The New Yorker.
