Book Study – So You Want to Talk About Race
July 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT
So You Want to Talk About Race by Ijeoma Oluo
Book Study via Zoom
Wednesdays June 10, 17, 24, and July 1.
Facilitated by Gables UCC Church Member, Laura Davis Smith
Widespread reporting on aspects of white supremacy–from police brutality to the mass incarceration of Black Americans–has put a media spotlight on racism in our society. Still, it is a difficult subject to talk about. How do you tell your roommate her jokes are racist? Why did your sister-in-law take umbrage when you asked to touch her hair–and how do you make it right? How do you explain white privilege to your white, privileged friend?
In the New York Times bestseller, So You Want to Talk About Race, Ijeoma Oluo guides readers of all races through subjects ranging from intersectionality and affirmative action to “model minorities” in an attempt to make the seemingly impossible possible: honest conversations about race and racism, and how they infect almost every aspect of American life.
