Guest Speaker: Debby Irving “Waking Up White”

October 8 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Waking Up White, a talk by author Debby Irving about her journey away from racial ignorance. Irving, who is white, grew up in an upper-middle-class suburb in Massachusetts in the 1960s and 70s. She worked in urban neighborhoods and schools from 1984 to 2009 and struggled to understand racial issues until a college graduate course on racial and cultural identity shifted her worldview and opened her to greater understanding and ways to stop perpetuating racism. Her 2014 book Waking Up White, and Finding Myself in the Story of Race has won multiple awards.  A reception will follow in Williams Gallery.
