SUNY Erie to Present An Evening with Author and Racial Justice Educator, Debby Irving

Article by: Paula Sandy

SUNY Erie Community College’s Diversity Academy presents “An Evening with Debby Irving, Author and Racial Justice Educator” on Wednesday, January 22 beginning at 6:15 p.m. in the Minnie Gillette Auditorium at the SUNY Erie City Campus, 121 Ellicott St, Buffalo.  

Debby Irving grew up in Winchester, Massachusetts in what she describes as a “blissfully sheltered, upper-middle-class suburban childhood”. After working from 1984-2009 in urban neighborhoods and schools of Boston, Irving wanted to understand racial dynamic more. In 2009, Irving attended a class at Wheelock College titled Racial and Cultural Identity which lead her on a journey from white oblivion to white awareness.  Waking up White is Irving’s attempt to overcome racial ignorance. 

This program is free and open to the public.
