P&P Live! Dax-Devlon Ross — LETTERS TO MY WHITE MALE FRIENDS - with Julie Lythcott-Haims

Upcoming Event
Friday, June 18, 2021 - 4:00pm

White men are finally realizing that simply not being racist isn’t enough to end racism. These men want deeper insight not only into how racism has harmed Black people, but, for the first time, into how it has harmed them. They are beginning to see that racism warps us all. Letters to My White Male Friends promises to help men who have said they are committed to change and to develop the capacity to see, feel and sustain that commitment so they can help secure racial justice for us all.

Ross helps readers understand what it meant to be America’s first generation raised after the civil rights era. He explains how we were all educated with colorblind narratives and symbols that typically, albeit implicitly, privileged whiteness and denigrated Blackness. He provides the context and color of his own experiences in white schools so that white men can revisit moments in their lives where racism was in the room even when they didn’t see it enter. Ross shows how learning to see the harm that racism did to him, and forgiving himself, gave him the empathy to see the harm it does to white people as well.

Ross will be in conversation with Julie Lythcott-HaimsNew York Times bestselling author of How to Raise an Adult and Real American. Her latest book, Your Turn: How to Be an Adult, is a groundbreakingly frank guide to being a grown-up.
