Over 500 people filled the Race Street Meetinghouse on April 17 for the only Philadelphia-area stop of the White Fragility in America Tour. Those who were unable to see the event live were able to watch a live stream in the Blauvelt Theatre at Friends Select School. Toni Graves Williamson, Friends Select’s director of equity and inclusion, arranged the event and introduced the evening’s speakers: Robin DiAngelo, the author of White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk about Racism, and Jack Hill, a diversity consultant, educator, and author.
