In-Depth, Multi-Part Book Discussion of 
White Fragility by Robin DiAngelo
Thursdays in September:
September 3, 10, 17, and 24


As we prepare for the High Holidays, this is a season of personal reflection in the Jewish calendar. In partnership with Or Shalom, we will be engaging in this personal reflection when it comes to race and racism by reading and discussing the book White Fragility: Why It's So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism by Robin DiAngelo.

This in-depth book discussion will have four sessions, all via Zoom. Registering is a commitment that you will attend via Zoom. Participants are expected to attend at least 3 of the 4 sessions, and preferably all of them. The book can be found at bookstores, your local library, as an ebook, as an audiobook on Audible, or click here to order online from Semicolon, Chicago's only Black-woman-owned bookstore.

Read at whatever pace suits your time. The sessions will focus on discussing these chapters:

  • September 3: Chapter 1
  • September 10: Chapters 2-4
  • September 17: Chapters 5-8
  • September 24: Chapters 9-12

Register below to receive the Zoom link, which will be sent in a confirmation email, and which will also be sent again closer to the date of the first class. If you belong to Congregation Or Shalom, please write "Or Shalom Member" in the Notes box.
