As an educator, neighbor and arts administrator, Irving constantly felt like she was missing something important when it came to her relationships with people of color. But an “aha” moment in 2009 opened her eyes to issues of race that she simply had not known or seen before.
Told with openness and gentle honesty, Waking Up White helps all of us to become better citizens of our ever diversely growing nation. It gives us a vocabulary to begin talking about racism, work in racially mixed groups and understand the racial justice movement as a whole. We hope you will make time for this very important conversation.
