(CAMPUS REFORM) -- The Boise State Gender Equity Center and the Center For Teaching and Learning are hosting a book circle series on a work by Robin DiAngelo, titled, “What Does It Mean to Be White?: Developing White Racial Literacy" -- and offering a reward to those who attend.
DiAngelo has published two other books on the topic: White Fragility: Why Is It So Hard For White People To Talk About Racism and Is Everyone Really Equal: An Introduction to Key Concepts in Critical Social Justice Education. In the former, she wrote that “white people raised in Western society are conditioned into a white supremacist worldview because it is the bedrock of our society and its institutions.”
The book circle page states that the group is intended for people who are interested in “unpacking white identity and how white folks distance themselves from conversations about race, as well as learning how to engage white folks in recognizing their privilege.”
