VIRTUAL: Anti-Racist Book Group: So You Want to Talk About Race

6:30 PM - 7:45 PM

Event Details

Introducing a new collaborative community event as part of our anti-racism journey: the Anti-Racist Book Group. Hosted in collaboration with the Austin Branch of the Chicago Public Library, monthly meetings will be virtual, and registration can be found on both libraries' online calendars.

Please join us to discuss So You Want to Talk About Race by Ijeoma Oluo.  This breakout book explores the complex reality of today's racial landscape—from white privilege and police brutality to systemic discrimination and the Black Lives Matter movement—offering straightforward clarity that readers need to contribute to the dismantling of the racial divide. 

This discussion will be moderated by Oak Park Public Library librarian Margita Lidaka and Chicago Public Library Branch Associate Charmaine Bryant.

Copies can be downloaded through Media on Demand/Libby and Hoopla. Need help getting started with Media on Demand, Libby, and Hoopla? Watch how-to videos at oppl.org/how-to-library »
