In this interactive workshop, participants will think about their own racial identity development and explore how this influences their work as educators. In particular, we will focus on Robin DiAngelo’s notion of “white fragility” -- the silence, discomfort, and/or defensiveness that many white folks feel when talking about issues of race and racism. How might our racial identities help or hinder our ability to form meaningful relationships with colleagues and students? What structures might allow us to engage with each other productively about race? We will explore these and other questions and, in the process, experience some tools and texts which can be used to bring this work to a range of contexts.
