Community Read for Racial Justice

Tuesday, August 13 - 7:00 PM


In support of Unity Days Cville, Charlottesville NOW invites everyone to join in a Community Read for Racial Justice. Read one or both of these New York Times bestsellers and join the conversation on August 13: 

White Fragility, by Robin DiAngelo explores the counterproductive reactions white people have when their assumptions about race are challenged, and how these reactions maintain racial inequality. https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/566247/white-fragility-by-robin-diangelo/9780807047415/

So You Want to Talk About Race, by Ijeoma Oluo offers a hard-hitting but user-friendly examination of race in America. https://www.sealpress.com/titles/ijeoma-oluo/so-you-want-to-talk-about-race/9781580056779/

Find the books at your local library or buy from your favorite bookseller. Join us even if you haven't finished the books!
