New Forum Book Study:
How to Be an Antiracist
by Ibram X. Kendi
Saturdays 10-11 AM by Zoom
Join our new Saturday morning book study of How to Be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi. This important bestseller is being widely read by people who want to better understand Black Lives Matter and systemic racism. The author shares personal experiences to illustrate an honest, thorough examination of racist dynamics and what is necessary to oppose them. This excellent book is a natural progression from last year's study of Waking Up White and I hope you'll join us. Some free books are available -- contact email@example.com to reserve your copy. Then join us on Saturdays at 10 AM via this Zoom link. Read for Sept. 19-- Ch 1: Definitions pp. 13-23
