Originally written by renowned best-selling author Dr. Robin DiAngelo, White Fragility has been adapted for young adults by Toni Graves Williamson, the director of equity and inclusion at Friends Select School, and Ali Michael, the co-founder and co-director of the Race Institute for K-12 Educators.

As school boards around the country are banning books, there’s never been a more important time for students to ask difficult questions, engage in meaningful dialogues, think critically and independently, and take action to create change. White Fragility (Adapted for Young Adults) provides a roadmap.
