What is “White Fragility?”
March 14 @ 7:00 am - 8:00 pm
Earlier this month, during the second service in our True and False series, Rev. Gretchen told the story of how Theodore Parker — a great abolitionist Unitarian minister in the 19th century — was also convinced of the supremacy of the white race. The way that people have come to think about race — in our country, and culture — is a great example of how our brains can justify our preconceived notions under the guise of rationality and reason.
This Thursday evening we’re holding a conversation that gets at some of these faulty ideas we have around race. Ministerial Resident Kristen Psaki will be leading a conversation around “white fragility” — a phrase coined by researcher Dr. Robin DiAngelo. Join us first for vespers beginning at 6:15 where we can take a moment of pause before diving into this important conversation.
