  • The Community Book Read of The New Jim Crow, by Michelle Alexander starting October 7, 2020 and running through November 18th, 2020. This session we will be reading the New York Times bestseller, The New Jim Crow, dubbed the “secular bible of a new social movement” which has led to consciousness-raising efforts in universities, churches, community centers, re-entry centers, and prisons nationwide. This Community Read calls for unlearning and engaging in hard, yet necessary conversations with ourselves and others that will provide an entrance point for our continued anti-racism work. By engaging in community-wide education, we will gain a common understanding of racism in America, building a strong foundation for real change. By registering in this event, you will have a community around you learning and growing together, weekly virtual discussion groups facilitated by members of the Community Center’s Equity Committee, thought-provoking questions and guided conversations emailed to you weekly to enhance your learning, and access to information from leaders in our community. We encourage you to join this Community Read with your family members, friends, existing book clubs, affinity groups, and/or employee groups.
