Join Peace & Justice Center, Showing Up For Racial Justice, and the Charlotte Library for a four-part discussion on the book White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard For White People To Talk About Racism by Robin DiAngelo. DiAngelo examines how white fragility develops, how it protects racial inequality, and what we can do to engage more constructively. Facilitators Susan Schoenfeld and Patricia Fontaine of the PJC and SURJ will lead you through this book as you dissect what this means for yourself and your community.

Books: A limited number of books will be available at the Charlotte Library, Phoenix Books, and other local libraries and bookstores as well online as e-books. Donations accepted for the SURJ-BTV book fund as well as for the PJC. A donation will also be made to Black Lives Matter of Greater Burlington.
