White Fragility

Host Aubrey Hicks is joined by professors Chris Redfearn and Liz Falletta in a discussion of the New York Times bestselling book White Fragility by Robin DiAngelo.

On today’s podcast, we talk about how white fragility works to sustain and reproduce the racist institutions & socialization which we all inherited.

Scheduling in the Spring semester is always hard. We decided to go ahead with a three white person panel for this particular book. We hope to model the kinds of conversations we hope are happening across the country in predominately white communities. To echo DiAngelo, this isn’t about guilt, it is about the responsibility we have to make the world better for our fellow citizens.

We make mistakes and welcome feedback.

Thanks to all of you who have shared feedback with us before & to those of you brave enough to share with us in the future.
