Event Details

The Beach Institute is excited to welcome Dr. Robin DiAngelo to a virtual fireside chat with our Chairman of the Board, Ronald L. Christopher, Esq. Recent events such as the killings of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd have sparked a worldwide conversation about race. Join us for a candid conversation about this and racial inequality with Dr. DiAngelo, an Affiliate Associate Professor of Education at the University of Washington. Her book, White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism was released in June of 2018 and debuted on the New York Times Bestseller List, where it has remained for more than two years and is being translated into 10 languages. In addition to her academic work, Dr. DiAngelo has been a consultant and trainer for over 20 years on issues of racial and social justice. Dr. D’Angelo also holds two Honorary Doctorates, is a two-time winner of the Student’s Choice Award for Educator of the Year at the University of Washington’s School of Social Work. In 2011 she coined the term White Fragility in an academic article which has influenced the international dialogue on race. In addition to her academic work, Dr. DiAngelo has been a consultant and trainer for over 20 years on issues of racial and social justice.
