Feb 17 – I’m a Good Person! Isn’t That Enough?
Thu February 17, 2022
Join us for a virtual presentation of “I’m a Good Person! Isn’t That Enough?” with Cantabrigian author and speaker Debby Irving.
Using historical and media images, Debby Irving examined how she used her white-skewed belief system to interpret the world around her. Socialized on a narrow worldview, Debby explored how she spent decades silently reaffirming harmful, archaic racial patterns instead of questioning the racial disparities and tensions she could see and feel. This workshop was designed to support white people in making the paradigm shift from ‘fixing’ and ‘helping’ those believed to be inferior, to focusing on internalized white superiority and its role in perpetuating racism at the individual, interpersonal, institutional, and cultural levels. This presentation included pauses for reflection, dialog, and Q&A.
