Author and educator Debby Irving will give a talk on the subject of her book, "WAKING UP WHITE: Finding OURSELVES in the Story of Race," on Sunday from 2 to 4:30 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church.
The church is located at 750 N. Evans St. in Pottstown.
There is no admission charge, but reservations are required and can be obtained by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 610-326-0620.
A community organizer and classroom teacher for 25 years, she grappled with racial injustice without understanding racism.
She holds a BA from Kenyon College and an MBA from Simmons College.
Her first book, "Waking Up White," tells the story of how she went from well-meaning to well-doing.
And "Kirkus Reviews" wrote: “The book uses Irving's experience of being a white woman coming to terms with the complexity of racism in the United States and her own perceptions as a lens to explore the role white allies can play in racial justice work.”
The talk is sponsored by the Broward County Community Foundation.
