Sadly, race remains one of the most divisive issues in our country. Nevertheless, many of us are yet to fully understand the challenges people of color face on an ongoing basis even today.

Debby Irving is joining us once again to share her brave, unflinching journey from white oblivion to white awareness openly chronicled in her book, Waking Up White and Finding Myself in the Story of Race. This is not only a riveting tale of the building awareness that led to Debby’s personal wake up call; the book also provides a fascinating look at racial denial and our society’s secret acceptance of white privilege.

If you care about equality and social justice, you won’t want to miss this thought-provoking discussion. Ms. Irving’s book provides the mirror to open and honest reflection and it’s up to each of us to bring racial consciousness into our minds and into our hearts.
