Actually Curious Book Club

What Is This? In June 2020, 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 co-facilitate a discussion. A (Zoom) book club was born.

What Book Is Next?  The 1619 Project

What Books Have You Already Read? Michelle Alexander’s The New Jim CrowHow to Be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi; Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates; James Baldwin’s Notes of a Native SonI Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou; You Can’t Touch My Hair by Phoebe Robinson; Caste by Isabel Wilkerson.
