Reading Against Racism-Kindred (Octavia Butler)

Education is a key part of becoming a more effective change agent and anti-racist advocate. Reading Against Racism is a great way to learn and raise your consciousness. Join us!

July's title will be the late great Octavia Butler’s speculative fiction classic: Kindred. Often called a "grim fantasy", Kindred is about a modern young black woman, Dana, who on her 26th birthday before the eyes of her white newlywed husband, is mysteriously transported from California in 1976 to Maryland at the beginning of the 19th century, during the time of enslavement. Butler is known for her speculative fiction, aka science fiction, but this book is the most untraditional of that genre. It is a powerful work, and was recently adapted as a graphic novel.

Location will be at the main downtown public library.

We meet on the 2nd Thursday of the month.

If you want to deepen your understanding of racial injustice, racial identity, and racism, and engage in meaningful conversations with others, please join us.

Our meetings are open to everyone who wants to take action against racism and learn about how it functions.
