“Race Rules”: An Interactive Discussion with Author Fatimah Gilliam ‘96

May 25 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm EDT


Please join us for a unique, engaging, and provocative conversation about race in the US today, with leading anti-racism activist and consultant, Fatimah Gilliam ‘96, author of Race Rules: What Your Black Friend Won’t Tell You. Our program will include an expert interview with the author by a WRJI leader, productive small group dialogue, and a plenary conversation with the author, WRJI leaders, and alums. All alums can benefit from this event, regardless of how you identify and/or your stage of learning about race and racism. You will be challenged, respected and supported in your anti-racism journey, even as you advance the growth of others.

Race Rules is a pragmatic response to this moment in American history – seeking to drive equity and behavioral change, while helping people navigate polarizing issues and expand cultural fluency across race. This distinctive antiracism book provides critical how-to advice on effective cross-racial allyship, following up with tangible tools and action steps for all readers. As one reviewer writes, “Fatimah Gilliam says the quiet part out loud.”  Moreover, Race Rules provides Black-identified readers with historical and individual validation for shared experiences, as well as concrete words and talking points to support them. 

Want to join the discussion, but won’t be on campus? We’re pleased to offer participation via Zoom! Trained facilitators will coordinate virtually with Zoom attendees for the small group discussion portion. Please register by Thursday, May 23 if you wish to participate virtually. The Zoom link will be sent in advance of the workshop.
