Community Conversations: Racial Justice Reading Discussion
Join us for a quarterly discussion group on four themes: racial justice (fall 2018), community divides (winter 2019), climate change (spring 2019), and safety & justice (summer 2019). Using newspaper and magazine articles as our jumping off points, we'll dig into these challenging topics. Articles are linked below, and hard copies are available to the right of the reference desk by the other book discussion group books. Read all or some of the articles, and bring your thoughts and questions to share!
For the fall quarter, in concert with the All Hamptons Read selection of Never Caught, we'll be discussing these four articles. Read as many as you wish!
- “There’s No Scientific Basis for Race—It's a Made-Up Label” by Elizabeth Kolbert (National Geographic)
- “Choosing a School for My Daughter in a Segregated City” by Nikole Hannah-Jones (The New York Times)
- “Documenting Hate: The Imam’s Widow” by Rahima Nasa (ProPublica)
