ECR0059 A Candid Conversation About Race, Culture, Identity, and Privilege
Waking up White author Debby Irving offers firsthand insight to the everyday perpetuation of racial inequality by well-intentioned white people. A community organizer and classroom teacher for 25 years, Irving grappled with racial injustice without understanding racism as a systemic issue or her own whiteness as an obstacle to it. Her book tells the story of how she went from well-meaning to well-doing. Waking Up White functions as both a “Racism 101” for white people and a rare exposé on whiteness for people of color. By sharing her sometimes cringe-worthy struggle to understand racism and racial tensions, she offers a fresh perspective on bias, stereotypes, manners, and tolerance. Her husband says: “It couldn’t have happened to a whiter person.”
