Wrestling with White Supremacy

Book Discussion Thursday, July 30 at 7:30 p.m.

In this New York Times bestseller, Ijeoma Oluo offers a hard hitting but user friendly examination of race in America. She offers a contemporary take on the racial landscape in America, addressing head-on such issues as privilege, police brutality, intersectionality, micro-aggressions, the Black Lives Matter movement and more.

All are welcome to join!
We will host this event through Zoom.
