In this “vital, necessary, and beautiful book” (Michael Eric Dyson), 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’ (Claudia Rankine). 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.

    Posted by Margery LaRue on 20th Jul 2020

    I just opened the package and it really put a smile on my face. Not only did I get the book I’ve been wanting to read but the extras in the envelope made me so happy. Definitely recommending you! Love that you are local, Black owned and the shipment was speedy and plastic free. Can’t wait until the vaccine so I can come in and browse!
