Readings on Race Discussion Group: How to Be An Antiracist

Cover Event Type: Library-sponsored Adult Event
Date: 2/8/2020
Start Time: 2:00 PM
End Time: 4:00 PM
Description:
 New members are invited to the Blue Hill Public Library's monthly discussion group, "Readings on Race," on Saturday, February 8th at 2:00 PM.

February's book will be "How to Be an Antiracist" by Ibram X. Kendi. In the book, Kendi asks the reader to think about what an antiracist society might look like, and how people can play an active role in building it, weaving together ethics, history, law, and science, and including an engaging personal narrative of his own awakening to antiracism. Copies will be available to check out in advance at the library.

Surry resident Kate Mrozicki facilitates the group. Kate is a farmer who believes in the power of difficult conversations to change our reality. She got to practice those conversations during years of working for The Food Project in Boston and now raising small children in Surry. This event is free and everyone is welcome. For more information call the library at 374-5515.
