Introduction to Breaking White Silence

Discover what it means to be white and the ramifications of remaining silent in the face of injustice. This session focuses on the Breaking White Silence project’s history and core understandings of racism. Includes interactive conversation as well as info and Q&A.

Breaking White Silence, a project of the PNA, is designed to educate white people on the structures and patterns of racism—and raise our consciousness about our own socialized patterns—by forming free, facilitated study groups to read and discuss Dr. Robin DiAngelo’s  What Does It Mean to Be White?: Developing White Racial Literacy (Revised Edition).

Dr. DiAngelo is a race and social justice educator and author of the 2018 New York Times best-selling book White Fragility. Her work has been featured at the Seattle Public Library and in Salon, NPR, Slate, and The New Yorker. More info about the project
