Co-hosted by RPL & Eliminate Racism 815, part of a new "Introduction to Racism" book discussion series.

Waking Up White is the book Irving wishes someone had handed her decades ago. By sharing her sometimes cringe-worthy struggle to understand racism and racial tensions, she offers a fresh perspective on bias, stereotypes, manners, and tolerance. As Irving unpacks her own long-held beliefs about colorblindness, being a good person, and wanting to help people of color, she reveals how each of these well-intentioned mindsets actually perpetuated her ill-conceived ideas about race.

This book discussion will be held virtually. You will be emailed a link from WebEx 24 hours before the event. Registration is required.
