February 27, 7pm @ Weaver Library
We will discuss The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness by Michelle Alexander, the second selection in a new discussion series at the Weaver Library. Led by Rev. Timoth Sylvia of Rumford’s Newman Congregational Church, this series continues to examine elements of systemic racism from a variety of perspectives. Remaining discussion titles include: Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates; White Fragility by Robin DiAngelo; Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption by Bryan Stevenson; and How To Be an Antiracist by Ibram X.
