Kenyon College (April 12, 2022)

Why Can't We Be Friends?: A conversation with Kimberlee Yolanda Williams and Debby Irving. Kimberlee and Debby discuss their own journey to authentic friendship and solidarity. 

White Privilege Conference (March 2022)

Presenting on her book Dear White Woman: Please Come Home, Kimberlee discusses how white supremacist structures have driven white women to ignore and harm their sisters of color. Find out how Kimberlee is learning to dig into this work in surprisingly vulnerable and
creative ways. As co-facilitator, Debby Irving uses her personal ups and downs in cross-racial female relationships for others to learn from. Together, they explore how to racially diversify friend groups, how to show up for and with colleagues in ways that disrupt historic patterns, and how to intentionally and thoughtfully be in community.
