Declare your independence from white fragility and white supremacy!

Beginning Thursday evening, August 2nd, from 7 to 9 pm, "Talking Race" resumes as a book circle, and continues on the first and third Thursdays of every month thereafter, through December.

We’ll begin with “Waking Up White: and finding myself in the story of race” by Debby Irving, and then move on to Toni Morrison’s new work, "The Origin of Others” before tackling the Paul Kivel's "Uprooting Racism: How White People Can Work For Racial Justice.”

Everyone is warmly welcome!
This community conversation is free, and donations to pay the rent are welcome.

Spread the word and thanks for being engaged!
