Antiracist Book Club discusses Stamped: The Remix

RESCHEDULED TO 9/2 @ 6PM!!!

ABOUT THE CLUB

You asked and we answered. We are thrilled to begin our Antiracist Book Club reading program. We'll discuss anti-racist and foundational literature. This is a safe, focused space in which to discuss the systematic structures of racism and the work we can do individually and community wide to dismantle them using the information from our texts and the lessons learned each session. Come as often or as rarely as you like, but whether or not you make this first session we recommend reading How to Be Anti-Racist as a starting place for discussion! This event is free but please RSVP via the ticket link below to get the link for the online conversation with owner Hannah Oliver Depp. 

ABOUT THE BOOK

A timely, crucial, and empowering exploration of racism--and antiracism--in America

This is NOT a history book.
This is a book about the here and now.
A book to help us better understand why we are where we are.
A book about race.

The construct of race has always been used to gain and keep power, to create dynamics that separate and silence. This remarkable reimagining of Dr. Ibram X. Kendi's National Book Award-winning Stamped from the Beginning reveals the history of racist ideas in America, and inspires hope for an antiracist future. It takes you on a race journey from then to now, shows you why we feel how we feel, and why the poison of racism lingers. It also proves that while racist ideas have always been easy to fabricate and distribute, they can also be discredited.

Through a gripping, fast-paced, and energizing narrative written by beloved award-winner Jason Reynolds, this book shines a light on the many insidious forms of racist ideas--and on ways readers can identify and stamp out racist thoughts in their daily lives.
