SPEAK: An Explorative Lecture Series will feature author and professor Robin DiAngelo, PhD on Wednesday, October 2 at 7:00 pm in the Browning Rooms at EVPL Central.

Author of the New York Times Bestseller White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard For White People To Talk About Racism, Robin DiAngelo has over 20 years of experience as a consultant and trainer on issues of racial and social justice and has worked with several organizations, including Amazon, The Hollywood Writer’s Guild, and the YMCA. Her area of research is in Whiteness Studies and Critical Discourse Analysis.

Having worked with a wide-range of organizations including private, non-profit, and governmental, her presentation will discuss the differences between prejudice, discrimination, and systematic racism.  Additionally, she will share resources for supporting the work of racial equity and recognizing common barriers to bridging racial divides while introducing the skills necessary for bridging them.

To supplement Robin DiAngelo’s talk on October 2, EVPL and BRIDGE, a local advocacy group who aims to bridge gaps for greater understanding within the diverse community of the Evansville area, will host a series of workshops delving into the topic of bias and white privilege.
