Join us at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 28 via Zoom to discuss SO YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT RACE
We offer a welcoming and compassionate space to focus on Chapters 12-17 and Discussion Questions 5-7 on page 255 in Zoom breakout rooms.
This is our third and final discussion on Ijeoma Oluo’s book. Details and registration: DivereseFortCollins.com/events
Description from Old Firehouse Books website:
In this New York Times bestseller, Ijeoma Oluo offers a hard-hitting but user-friendly examination of race in America
Widespread reporting on aspects of white supremacy — from police brutality to the mass incarceration of Black Americans — has put a media spotlight on racism in our society. Still, it is a difficult subject to talk about. How do you tell your roommate her jokes are racist? Why did your sister-in-law take umbrage when you asked to touch her hair — and how do you make it right? How do you explain white privilege to your white, privileged friend?
We look forward to seeing you this Sunday!
Watch for an announcement coming soon on our Discussion Series podcast, novel, and film selections.
Diverse Fort Collins is a volunteer-driven community project advocating for antiracism and racial equity. We connect people with resources and each other.
Let’s co-create an inclusive community!
