Deconstructing White Privilege with Dr. Robin DiAngelo

This will take a commitment to listen to ... as it is a bit longer than the typical FB video length we are all used to! But, worth it. Robin DiAngelo has a very careful and effective style of teaching that helps peel back our surface understanding of race and white privilege. If you are compelled and committed to understanding more, her book, White Fragility, is highlighted in the youtube video that follows.

My novel, The Peacock's Stone, was an early, fumbling attempt to reach for a reality of matured hearts that unflinchingly understand the position they hold in society and from this veracity of heart-living, transform a village. We all need to start somewhere in this journey to transform our minds deeply enough to create new paths of reacting rightly, truthfully, from love.

Dr. Robin DiAngelo is the author of "What Does it Mean to Be White? Developing White Racial Literacy" and has been an anti-racist educator, and has heard jus...

I love the journey of writing -- or reading -- a new book! The journey of a story is always new because we are not static and always bring to it a different way of seeing, so it is always a new adventure. And, this works both ways--when you turn the last page, you are always slightly different, richer, deeper, for the experience.

"There is something delicious about writing the first words of a story. You never quite know where they'll take you." -- Beatrix Potter

Beatrix Potter, the beloved English author and illustrator of “The Tale of Peter Rabbit" and many similar animal books, was an avid naturalist who spent much of her time drawing and observing things found in nature. As a child, Potter and her brother kept, cared for, studied, and drew their impressive collection of animals and insects which they kept in their school room and on the Scottish and northern England estates where they spent many of their summers.

In 1902, Potter’s most famous work, “The Tale of Peter Rabbit,” was published to immediate success. For almost two decades, she continued to publish two or three similar books per year. Potter also spent a good deal of time drawing and observing things found in nature. Mycology, the study of fungi, was of particular interest to Ms. Potter, and she even wrote a paper on the subject of fungal spore reproduction. Her paper was presented at a meeting of the Linnean Society in 1897 by a mycologist from the Royal Botanic Gardens, because women of the time were not permitted to attend the meetings.

Upon her death in 1943, Potter, a dedicated conservationist, bequeathed sixteen farms and over 4,000 acres of land to the National Trust, enabling significant preservation of the lands that created the Lake District National Park. At the time, it was the largest gift the National Trust had ever received.

For an excellent biography about her life for adult readers, we recommend "Beatrix Potter: A Life in Nature" at http://amzn.to/1bwf7vq

There's also a fascinating book which explores how Beatrix Potter's garden inspired the characters in her classic children's tales, "Beatrix Potter's Gardening Life: The Plants and Places That Inspired the Classic Children's Tales" at http://amzn.to/1q6E6Yn

This stunning book sculpture by artist David Kracov, entitled "The Book of Life," is a tribute to Rabbi Yossi Raichik, director of Chabad’s Children of Chernobyl - CCOC organization. Each of the 2,547 hand-painted butterflies represents a child who escaped the Chernobyl disaster and was helped by the charity during Raichik's time as director. The book is filled with filled with poems and songs written by children and young people who died at Auschwitz, including the poignant poem "The Butterfly" by Pavel Friedmann.

Pavel's poem is included in a powerful collection of artwork and poetry by the young inmates of the Terezin-Theresienstadt concentration camp, "I Never Saw Another Butterfly" for teens and adults, ages 12 and up, at http://amzn.to/2lBEktO

For an excellent novel about an 11-year-old girl living in a village near Chernobyl whose life is turned upside down after the disaster, we recommend “Radiant Girl” for ages 9 to 14 at http://www.amightygirl.com/radiant-girl

For many books for children and teens about girls and women who lived during the Holocaust period, check out our blog post "40 Mighty Girl Books About the Holocaust," at http://www.amightygirl.com/blog?p=11586

A person's favorite book says a lot about them. But the book won't simply reveal that person's literary tastes --research from Emory University shows that books can actually change the way you think -- for at least a little while.
