AACTE is pleased to announce renowned academic, lecturer, and author Robin DiAngelo will headline the 2020 Annual Meeting, February 28 – March 1 in Atlanta, GA. She will take center stage as the opening keynote speaker on Friday, February 28.

DiAngelo serves as the affiliate associate professor of education at the University of Washington, where she teaches courses in multicultural teaching, inter-group dialogue facilitation, cultural diversity and social justice, and anti-racist education. She is widely recognized for her research in critical discourse analysis and whiteness studies.

In 2011, DiAngelo coined the term “white fragility” in an academic article, which influenced the national dialogue on race. Her book, White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard For White People To Talk About Racism, was released in June 2018 and debuted on the New York Times Bestseller List.
