Excerpts We Should Read, Talk About and Act On

February 7, 2023

7-8 pm
Important Passages to Guide Us to Stand UP with Our Neighbors

Join us for meaningful Zoom conversations based on book excerpts from social justice literature that can impact how we live in community. No need to read the books before hand; we will share excerpts – that lead to discussion and understanding.

Each of our conversations will be strengthened by participation of the four local leaders who recommended one of the books. They are dedicated to helping neighbors live with each other based on our shared humanity across real and perceived differences.

Killing the Black Body: Race, Reproduction, and the Meaning of Liberty, Dorothy Roberts.

Recommended by Sydney Etheredge, President and CEO, Planned Parenthood of Western PA

Tuesday, February 7 – 7-8 PM

 

In 1997, this groundbreaking book made a powerful entrance into the national conversation on race. Killing the Black Body exposed America’s systemic abuse of Black women’s bodies.
