#4) Library Event: I’m A Good Person! Isn’t That Enough?
Using historical and media images, racial justice educator and writer, Debby Irving, examines how she used her white-skewed belief system to interpret the world around her. Socialized on a narrow worldview, Debby explores how she spent decades silently reaffirming harmful, archaic racial patterns instead of questioning the racial disparities and tensions she could see and feel. This program is 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. Debby’s presentation is followed by an interview and Q&A with a panel of local residents from two organizations working on social justice issues. Panelists include Bria Gadsen, Elizabeth Walther-Grant, and Mayara Reis of Merrimack Valley Black & Brown Voices, and Amaryllis Lopez of Elevated Thought.
This virtual event, held at 7pm, will take place over Zoom Webinar. Registration is required here.
This program is part of a series, Libraries Working Towards Social Justice, offered in collaboration with Courageous Conversations and eight Merrimack Valley libraries – Burlington Public Library, Haverhill Public Library, Lawrence Public Library, Memorial Hall Library, Nevins Memorial Library, Stevens Memorial Library, Tewksbury Public Library & Wilmington Memorial Library.
