Message from our Online Facilatator

I'm often asked by white women, what can I do? And I think the first thing to do is listen and engage in conversations with people of color.
Courageous Conversations℠ was created to bring women of all colors together to break the silence in regard to race and inequality.

Current Topic

What is White Fragility?

In this book, antiracist educator Robin DiAngelo deftly illuminates the phenomenon of white fragility and allows us to understand racism as a practice not restricted to bad people. Referring to the defensive moves that white people make when challenged racially, white fragility is characterized by emotions such as anger, fear, and guilt, and by behaviors including argumentation and silence. These behaviors, in turn, function to reinstate white racial equilibrium and prevent any meaningful cross-racial dialogue. In this in-depth exploration, DiAngelo examines how white fragility develops, how it protects racial inequality, and what we can do to engage more constructively.
