Dr. Robin DiAngelo Lecture: White Fragility


Dr. DiAngelo was originally scheduled for an on campus visit last year but because of the pandemic, was forced to cancel. We are thrilled that she is able to join us virtually this April.


The goal of this event is to generate conversations around structural and systemic racism, whiteness, white privilege and dominance, and white fragility that her work explores and that is connected to a much broader area of scholarship and social justice work. The event is open to members of the DePaul community.


Dr. Robin DiAngelo is the author of the award-winning book, White Fragility: Why It's So Hard for White People to Talk about Racism (2018). Dr. DiAngelo is the co-author of Is Everybody Really Equal?: An Introduction to Key Concepts in Critical Social Justice Education, co-written with Özlem Sensoy), and author of What Does It Mean to be White? Developing White Racial Literacy. She has been a consultant, educator and facilitator for over 20 years on issues of racial and social justice, and has worked with a wide-range of organizations including private, non-profit, and governmental.


This event is sponsored by the DePaul University Office of Institutional Diversity and Equity, the Women's Center, the Theatre School, and Academic Affairs.
