EPIP Philly | White Fragility Book Club

Ever read a book and wonder who can I call to discuss? Look no further EPIP Philly has a book club! Everyone now has a place to talk through philanthropic related reads.

Our summer read is White Fragility by Dr. Robin DiAngelo. This text explicates the dynamics of White Fragility and how we might build our capacity in the on-going work towards racial justice. White Fragility is a state in which even a minimum amount of racial stress becomes intolerable, triggering a range of defensive moves.



We encourage you to dive into the text, read some articles about the book, and come curious and open to dialogue. As a start, might we suggest a short clip about Debunking the most common myths white people tell about race. While we prefer attendees to read the book prior to the discussion, all are welcome to attend and participate.

We look forward to seeing you in June!

Happy Reading.
