What Is This? In an effort to learn and deepen my knowledge of race and race issues in the United States, I decided to do more reading on the topic. When a colleague expressed interest in doing the same, we teamed up and decided to facilitate a discussion on Michelle Alexander’s The New Jim Crow. We wound up having two meaningful conversations about it. Next we read How to Be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi and then Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates. We felt the next logical step was to go back in time a bit and get acquainted with James Baldwin, so he’s up next.
What Is the Book? Notes of a Native Son by James Baldwin (We recommend also watching the documentary I Am Not Your Negro to enhance the discussion.)
What If I Missed Earlier Meetings? It doesn’t matter. We welcome more voices and points of view.
