Racial Justice Reading Group
Date(s) - 08/25/2021
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
For this month, we are reading one of two books (or both if you are an overachiever).
- Option 1, The Yellow House by Sarah M. Broom, chronicles Broom’s family, her life growing up in New Orleans East, and the eventual demise of her beloved childhood home after Hurricane Katrina.
- Option 2, The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America by Richard Rothstein, documents the evidence that government not merely ignored discriminatory practices in the residential sphere, but promoted them.
Both books are nonfiction and are available in paperback and may be available at the public library, either in print or ebook.
Join us for discussion on the fourth Wednesday in August, August 25 at 7:00 pm, or don’t. But now you know what we are reading and might want to secretly read along.
