Community Conversations on Race
Community Conversation on Race -
Final one for this year -
Thursday, June 1, 2023 at 7pm on Zoom.
Theme - RACE & BOOK BANNING! What actions can we take?
Join us during LGBTQ+ Awareness Month in this moment when book bans target books about race, gender and sexuality more than any others.
We will look at some banned books; examine our own biases as readers; think about how to "decolonize" our bookshelves, as well as our children's and grandchildren's bookshelves; and share action steps we might take in response to book bans in our own libraries.
Another Issue in support of democracy. . .
