The Dorothy Height Book Club will meet at YWCA Lancaster on the 3rd Thursday of every month.

This session is set for March 19 at 6:00 p.m. and we will be discussing:
White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism

This is a 2018 non-fiction book written by Robin DiAngelo

Description:
A book on challenging racism by working against and understanding what the author terms “white fragility.” With a forward by Michael Eric Dyson, he writes “White Fragility is a vital, necessary and beautiful book, a bracing call to white folk everywhere to see their whiteness for what it is and to seize the opportunity to make things better now. Robin DeAngelo kicks all the crutches to the side and demands that white folk finally mature and face the world they’ve made while seeking to help remake it for those that have neither their privilege nor their protection.”

** Don’t have a copy of White Fragility? YWCA Lancaster has copies of the book available at our front desk for no charge while supplies last. Stop by the building on Lime Street to get your copy.
