WHITE RAGE AND WHITE FRAGILITY ALL COURSES ARE OFFERED VIA ZOOM

In this course, we will take a deep dive into two books: Carol Anderson’s White Rage, which describes the history of backlash against civil rights gains of African Americans, and Robin DiAngelo’s White Fragility, which describes the emotional responses and defensive moves that white Americans frequently engage in to simultaneously deny their own racism and to hold racism in place. We will explore the linkages between white rage and white fragility by looking at the cycles of progress and backlash in the United States, and by exploring relevant theories of psychological functioning. Participants in the course will develop an understanding of the interlocking historical and psychological factors that impede movement towards an equitable society.

SLIDING SCALE $25 - $99

Equity Intersection is an equity and justice education non-profit. We offer adult education courses on all elements of equity, including disability. We believe education is action. Our courses address race, gender and LGBTQ+ status. A unique feature of Equity Intersection is our focus on ableism and disability justice. We believe that a focus on disability strengthens our understanding of all forms of inequity, and so builds empathy, agency and community.
