LafayetteREADS: online discussion of White Fragility

Discuss White Fragility with LafayetteReads

The Lafayette Public Library is dedicating the next year of LafayetteREADS to reading the stories and histories that define systemic racism and racial inequity in America. Our first selection is White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism by Robin DiAngelo. FREE copies of the book are available under the Library’s curbside hold pickup tent while supplies last, or may be reserved for checkout. 

Due to COVID-19, conversations will be conducted virtually via Zoom, facilitated by Library staff and other community members. There will be two virtual discussions, with three opportunities to participate for each. 

  • Talking About Race: September 28, or October 4. 
  • Triggers, Behaviors, and Next Steps: November 8
