As part of our Awakening to Change series, the Blackstone Library is offering a social justice book club. Each month we’ll read a book selected to help us develop a shared understanding of the complex issues surrounding racism. Over the course of several in-depth discussions, we aim to begin understanding the world in a new way.
The series continues in October with a special screening of the documentary 13th directed by Ava DuVernay. In this thought-provoking documentary, scholars, activists and politicians analyze the criminalization of African Americans and the U.S. prison boom.
The discussion will take place on three Thursdays in October at 7:00 via Zoom. Please be sure to register for all three sessions individually.
The film will be broken up into 3 parts to allow for more in depth and essential conversations. Meetings will be held on 10/7, 10/14, and 10/21.
Registration is required to attend this ONLINE event.
