  • White Fragility: Why It's So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism

    The New York Times best-selling book exploring the counterproductive reactions white people have when their assumptions about race are challenged, and how these reactions maintain racial inequality. In this “vital, necessary, and beautiful book” (Michael Eric Dyson), antiracist educator Robin DiAngelo deftly illuminates the phenomenon of white fragility and “allows us to understand racism as a practice not restricted to ‘bad people’ (Claudia Rankine). Referring to the defensive moves that white people make when challenged racially, white fragility is characterized by emotions such as anger, fear, and guilt, and by behaviors including argumentation and silence. These behaviors, in turn, function to reinstate white racial equilibrium and prevent any meaningful cross-racial dialogue. In this in-depth exploration, DiAngelo examines how white fragility develops, how it protects racial inequality, and what we can do to engage more constructively.

Tatum’s unique ability to get people talking about race captured the attention of many, from Oprah Winfrey to President Clinton, who invited her to join him in his nationally televised dialogues on race.In her first book since that pathbreaking success, Tatum starts with a warning call about the increasing but underreported resegregation of America. A selfdescribed “integration baby“—she was born in 1954—Tatum sees our growing isolation from each other as deeply problematic, and she believes that schools can be key institutions for forging connections across the racial divide.In this ambitious, accessible book, Tatum examines some of the most resonant issues in American education and race relations:    • The need of African American students to see themselves reflected in curricula and institutions    • How unexamined r...

  • A White Teacher Talks about Race, Classroom Edition

    Veteran teacher Julie Landsman leads the reader through a day of teaching and reflection about her work with high school students who are from a variety of cultures. She speaks honestly about issues of race, poverty, institutional responsibility, and white privilege by engaging the reader in the experiences of a day in the classroom with some of her remarkable students. Throughout the day, we meet bigotry head-on, struggle with questions of racial identity, and find cultural conflict in the corridors of the school building. Along the way, we come face to face with Tyrone, a young African-American student grappling with the realities of discrimination in suburbia. We encounter Sheila, a teenage mother struggling to raise her baby in poverty, and we get to know Sarah, a white girl living on the streets of Minneapolis. Through the author's eyes, we begin to understand the complexities of teaching in today's society and we learn within the pages of this book, if only just for a moment, what it feels like to be the other.

  • Talking About Race: A Workbook About White People Fostering Racial Equality in Their Lives

    Fourteen years ago when a skillful teacher took a try at teaching a college-level course on racism she opened some minds. Then life moved on. The teacher, an undergraduate student, finished her degree and graduated. The course and her students remained in her thoughts. Kaolin, who uses only a single name, was that teacher. A decade after her college classroom experience, Kaolin decided to place her experiences and materials into a book format. Going from classroom setting to book form took some doing. The result is Talking About Race: A Workbook about White People Fostering Racial Equality in Their Lives. 'My students taught me that racism is a burden,' says Kaolin. 'I still find today that the great majority of educators will want to understand that students carry a lot of racist baggage with them from grade to grade in school.' Educators are a target audience for Talking About Race although the book is written for wider appeal. To some measure the book addresses all white people. It contains material specifically concerning white people working to achieve racial equality in their lives. Kaolin hopes the book will appeal to readers of color as well, providing insight to psychological and social experiences white people encounter. The book can be used by individuals, small stud...
