Book Discussion: Waking Up White
Date(s) - 01/28/2018
9:30 am - 10:45 am
Join the Social Justice council to discuss the first 15 chapters of “Waking Up White and Finding Myself in the Story of Race” by Debby Irving.
There are 5 copies of the book available for check-out in the church office. The CRPL has one copy and the book is available on Kindle or Nook for around $8.00.
As you read, think about:
What stereotypes about people of another race do you remember hearing and believing as a child?
How much were you encouraged to question stereotypes?
After reading Chapter 9, how do you feel about the term “Caucasian?”
Think of a time you grossly misinterpreted a person (of any race). What information was missing that allowed you to draw incorrect conclusions?
What in your belief system contributed to your misinterpretation?
