The Inclusive Reading Club

Join us for a discussion of The Hate U Give, the award-winning, critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller by Angie Thomas that chronicles the experiences of a black family in Georgia confronting racial norms and police brutality, and Race Matters by Dr. Cornel West, a national bestseller that recently celebrated 25 years of publication.The powerful essays in Race Matters explore issues "relevant to black Americans, including the crisis in leadership in the Black community, Black conservatism, Black-Jewish relations, myths about Black sexuality, and the legacy of Malcolm X." Student leaders from the Black Student Union and the Multicultural Student Organization will be joining the discussion. Participants have the option of reading the entire book, The Hate U Give, or selected readings from Race Matters. The library is purchasing limited copies of The Hate U Give for students (contact Rose Albert, rose.albert@salve.edu or stop by The Office Of Multicultural Programs for a copy). Alternatively, you may request copies of the book through the library's catalog. If you can't make it to the meeting, post your thoughts online to https://padlet.com/salvelibrarian/irc and we'll include your comments in the discussion. Open to all students, faculty, and staff. Sponsored by the Office of Multicultural Programs and McKillop Library. For more information about the book group, contact Rose Albert, of Multicultural Programs (rose.albert@salve.edu; 341-3285) or Gretchen Sotomayor, McKillop Library, (gretchen.sotomayor@salve.edu; 341-2281).
