“No one becomes ‘not racist,’ despite a tendency by Americans to identify themselves that way. We can only strive to be ‘antiracist’ on a daily basis, to continually rededicate ourselves to the lifelong task of overcoming our country’s racist heritage.” Ibram Kendi.
Join us for a four book discussion on what it means to be anti-racist in the United States. This facilitated conversation will cover the systematic structures of racism and what we can do individually and as a community to dismantle them. The reading list includes: How to be an Anti-Racist by Ibram Kendi; Me and White Supremacy by Layla Saad; and My Grandmother’s Hands by Resmaa Menakem. A fourth book is yet to be determined.
Each anti-racism book group will meet every 4 weeks for a total of 4 sessions. This group will meet over zoom for the first session. Depending on the preferences of the group we may meet outside (keeping 6 feet apart etc.) as an alternative to Zoom for future sessions.
Due to availability of books, the book list and reading dates is subject to change.
1st Session Book: How To Be An Antiracist – Subject to change if attendees are unable to get the book.
