Waking Up White

Waking Up White

One of the key aspects of white privilege is that, as a white person, I am not required to think about or consider my racial identity. I could navigate my world without giving my whiteness a second thought. But while I do not have to think about my race, it is important that I do.

Reading Waking Up White gave me a powerful, thought-provoking introduction to how to think about the story of race. Not every one of Debby Irving's stories or reflections are the same as my own life experiences, but she asks challenging questions of the reader and offers a space to explore what it means to be white and the importance of "waking up." This book was a fantastic starting point to understanding white privilege and its impact in my own life.  

I’m looking forward to the conversation and hope you’ll join me on ZOOM!  Meetings are scheduled for Thursday July 9, 16 and 23 @ 6:30 pm.  Email info@gotgrace.com to sign up!
