Robin diAngelo and Beverly Daniel Tatum – Conversations About Race

In Conversation With Hannah MacInnes

Join Logo

Two of the most influential thinkers on race and racism in the 21st century join us to explore how we can move forward.

What we can do to have better conversations with our children and with each other about race, and build a better world?

Beverly Daniel Tatum and Robin DiAngelo have dedicated their lives to anti-racist education. The bestselling authors of, respectively, Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria? and White Fragility, their insights are essential for anyone interested in understanding the dynamics of race in the United States.

In this livestream, In Conversation event, they will explore how well-meaning white progressives can unknowingly cause harm to people of colour – from romanticising black and indigenous people to hesitating to speak to children about racism or fear of creating problems where none exist, afraid they will make “colour-blind” children unnecessarily colour-conscious.

In the age of Trump, Black Lives Matter, and increasingly polarisation, this is an urgent call to embrace courage, lifelong commitment and accountability in the struggle for equality.
