Session: Hard Truths: Racism and Allyship

11 a.m. Thursday, May 6

Advancing racial equity and combating racism requires us to look inside ourselves at our own complicity. Robin DiAngelo authored the book White Fragility, which proposes ways white people must engage on this issue. The book has been praised by many and challenged by some. In a live podcast taping of Slate’s A Word... With Jason Johnson, they’ll discuss her theory on the complicated role non-white should play in this work.
