Thanks so much for driving to Rochester this past weekend for the Beyond White Fragility workshop. I stayed for almost the whole 3.5 hours (left to another appt at the end), appreciating your authenticity and the honest and kind way you engaged with us participants. Your sharing of your facebook discussion with your white friend gave me the courage to move into my “strategic discomfort” zone and engage another participant about what I saw as her white fragility. It took some courage on my part, and I learned a lot as well, including finding ways to keep other whites in the room and willing to engage in the conversation. Your modeling how to engage people helped me to do this. Thank you!

I look forward to seeing you more and reading your blog.

With much appreciation,
Barb Van Kerkhove
