Waking Up White-Book Study
July 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
For 25 years, Debby Irving sensed inexplicable racial tensions in her personal and professional relationships. As a colleague and neighbor, she worried about offending people she dearly wanted to befriend. As an arts administrator, she didn’t understand why her diversity efforts lacked traction. As a teacher, she found her best efforts to reach out to students and families of color left her wondering what she was missing.
Then, in 2009, one “aha!” moment launched an adventure of discovery and insight that drastically shifted her worldview and upended her life plan.
In Waking Up White, Irving tells her often cringe-worthy story with such openness that listeners will be rooting for her – and ultimately for all of us.
Each chapter in this book has thought provoking questions and on July 20, all are welcome to gather in the courtyard or library (dependent on weather) for a discussion. Sign up below!
