Peter Lang Inc., International Academic Publishers #ad - Written as an accessible overview on white identity from an anti-racist framework, What Does It Mean to Be White? is an invaluable resource for members of diversity and anti-racism programs and study groups, and students of sociology, psychology, education, and other disciplines. What does it mean to be white in a society that proclaims race meaningless, yet is deeply divided by race? In the face of pervasive racial inequality and segregation, most white people cannot answer that question.

Speaking as a white person to other white people, DiAngelo clearly and compellingly takes readers through an analysis of white socialization.

This revised edition features two new chapters, including one on DiAngelo’s influential concept of white fragility.
