“Waking Up White, and Finding Myself in the Story of Race”
A Presentation by Racial Justice Educator and author, Debby Irving
May 11, 2017
7:00 – 9:00pm
I’m a Good Person! Isn’t That Enough?
Using historical and media images, Debby examines how she used her white-skewed belief system to interpret the world around her. Socialized on a narrow worldview, Debby explores how she spent decades silently reaffirming harmful, archaic racial patterns instead of questioning the racial disparities and tensions she could see and feel. This workshop is designed to support white people in making the paradigm shift from ‘fixing’ and ‘helping’ those believed to be inferior, to focusing on internalized white superiority and its role in perpetuating racism at the individual, interpersonal, institutional, and cultural levels. This presentation includes pauses for reflection, dialog, and Q&A.
FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. Light refreshments will be served.
