“Racism is arguably the most complex and nuanced social dilemma since the beginning of this country, and yet nothing in dominant society gives us (white people) the information we need to engage across race with nuance and complexity. We do of course develop opinions on racism, but without years of sustained study, struggle, focus, mistake-making and relationship building, our opinions are not informed. In fact, they will most likely be ignorant. In the face of that ignorance, it is essential – and this is a life-long process that is never finished – to continually reach for humility, check our complacency, and build accountability to people of color.”
NOTE: During 2020, Dr. DiAngelo will be collaborating with ERE (Education for Racial Equity) on a series of public events. Please see their Events page for more information:

Half-Day Workshop – San Francisco, CA
July 9 @ 2:00 pm - 5:30 pm$65 – $130
In this 3.5 hour workshop with Dr. DiAngelo we will explore topics including white socialization, systemic racism, white solidarity, the specific ways racism manifests for white progressives, safety versus comfort, the politics of emotions, and white fragility. This will be a combination of lecture, structured reflection, and small group discussion designed to provide a comprehensive system analysis and identify personal complicity.
