We are happy to introduce our new book club: Between the Pages, Speak Up! Our book club is designated to celebrating diversity but also actively engaging in literature that focuses on anti-racism and decolonization. It is open for anyone to join, we meet monthly on Zoom where we will engage in conversations about the book and hopefully enrich our shared interest in decolonizing and anti-racism work.

Our first meeting is on Thursday February 23rd from 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm on Zoom. We’ll be discussing Conversations In Black: On Power, Politics, and Leadership by Ed Gordon for our first book. Interested in joining us? Please request to join our Facebook group HERE for all of the details!

Happy reading!
