The content and length of the April 28th ADORE meeting has been changed. The documentary, Against All Odds: The Fight For A Black Middle Class, will be viewed and discussed soon at a later meeting. On April 28th, the ADORE group will view and discuss a video of University of Washington professor Robin DiAngelo reading from her book, White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard For White People To Talk About Racism, while she explains the phenomenon, and discusses how white people can develop their capacity to engage more constructively across race. Since the video lasts about 1 hour and 20 minutes and we need ample discussion time, the ADORE meeting will run 2 1/2 hours, from 11:30am – 2:10pm. The first 10 minutes, 11:30 – 11:40am will be set aside for a short orientation for newcomers. The general meeting will start promptly at 11:40 am.
Co-facilitators Allison Jacobs and Jill Rabinov decided that it was very important to change the meeting content so that people who haven’t read Robin DiAngelo’s book could benefit from her crucial insights, and people who have read it can delve even deeper by hearing poignant, purposeful sections and discussing them.
Pizza will be available for $1.50 per piece and childcare will be available upstairs.
All are welcome!
