Connect + Communicate Online Book Discussion: December 9th

November 26, 2019

Please join the CRD’s Connect + Communicate Series for on online book discussion of Robin DiAngelo’s White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism. DiAngelo, an antiracist educator, explores the ways white behavior, unconscious and conscious, continues to uphold racial inequality.

The virtual discussion will be held on Monday December 9th, at 12 pm. Our conversation will be guided by the following questions:

  1. White fragility is centered around white people’s discomfort with talking about race. What portion(s) of the book evoked discomfort in you?
  2. Can you describe a situation you encountered white fragility from a fellow LIS professional? How did you handle it? How would you handle it after reading this book?
  3. How does white fragility play a role in the lack of diversity in librarianship? How has this book impacted your view of diversity and equity within the profession? What can we do to disrupt white supremacy within librarianship?

Click here to register for the discussion. You do not have to be a PaLA or CRD member to attend. The Zoom link will be sent out to registered attendees prior to December 9th.

If you have any questions, please contact Erin Burns at emb28@psu.edu.
