GWP formally launched its book club in January 2020, but as we’ve transitioned to virtual programming, we’ve also taken this opportunity to reimagine the book club. Moving forward, GWP will partner with The Tiny Bookstore and focus on readings specifically related to racial justice.
Join us as we read and discuss Ibram X. Kendi's How To Be An Antiracist. In this book, Kendi’s concept of antiracism reenergizes and reshapes the conversation about racial justice in America -- but even more fundamentally, points us toward liberating new ways of thinking about ourselves and each other. Instead of working with the policies and systems now in place, Kendi asks us to think about what an antiracist society might look like, and how we can play an active role in building it.
