Led By: Sister Francine Schwarzenberger
Dates: Wednesdays January 13, 20,27 February 3 and 10
Time: 1:30 – 2:30 p.m. CST via Zoom
We are at an opportune moment in our history to examine racist attitudes that can be so destructive in our society. DiAngelo will help us understand how these attitudes and their consequent emotions function to reinstate white equilibrium and prevent meaningful dialogue. For all people who are invested in wanting societal change, a study of this book is a way to be an important part of that change.
