"White Fragility: Why It's So Hard for White People to Talk Racism," Robin DiAngelo, author of "White Fragility" and "Is Everyone Really Equal." DiAngelo has had a profound influence on the national discourse on race. She is affiliate faculty at the University of Washington College of Education. Doors open at 6 p.m.

Robin DiAngelo has facilitated trainings on racial and social justice issues for more than 20 years and coined the term "white fragility" in 2011. DiAngelo will discuss her concept of how white Americans are unknowingly socialized to be highly sensitive to and defensive in situations involving race -- that is, racially "fragile." She also emphasizes the perspectives and skills white people need to build in order to engage more constructively across race.

Iowa State students may present their ISU Card for limited, first-floor priority seating until 6:30pm.
