ONLINE PROGRAM: Reading in the Hall Discussion
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

This month we are discussing "Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You" by Jason Reynolds, the Reading Across Rhode Island 2021 selection

"The construct of race has always been used to gain and keep power, to create dynamics that separate and silence. Racist ideas are woven into the fabric of this country, and the first step to building an antiracist America is acknowledging America's racist past and present. This book takes you on that journey, showing how racist ideas started and were spread, and how they can be discredited." -- Dust Jacket copy
