Description
The New York Times best-selling book exploring the counterproductive reactions white people have when their assumptions about race are challenged, and how these reactions maintain racial inequality. In this “vital, necessary, and beautiful book” (Michael Eric Dyson), antiracist educator Robin DiAngelo deftly illuminates the phenomenon of white fragility and “allows us to understand racism as a practice not restricted to ‘bad people’ (Claudia Rankine). Referring to the defensive moves that white people make when challenged racially, white fragility is characterized by emotions such as anger, fear, and guilt, and by behaviors including argumentation and silence. These behaviors, in turn, function to reinstate white racial equilibrium and prevent any meaningful cross-racial dialogue. In this in-depth exploration, DiAngelo examines how white fragility develops, how it protects racial inequality, and what we can do to engage more constructively.

      • content: This audiobook, a NEW YORK TIMES bestseller in print, is instructive, informational, and clear. The author provides an introduction to the social phenomenon called "white fragility," in particular its discomforts and pushback. As part of the discussion, she explains various racial terms and their history. Narrator Amy Landon's objective tone allows the audiobook to speak for itself. Steady and comfortable, she sounds like she's facilitating just the kind of uncomfortable but crucial dialogue that the author says is often unspoken in public spaces. Landon meets the author's goal of providing vital information to help diverse groups of people connect. T.E.C. � AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine
