Unpacking™ So You Want to Talk About Race

June 11 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

$10

Join Founder/Executive Director Calvin Eaton in an informal and thought provoking chat around socially conscious books that are must reads for anyone doing or interested in social and race activism work.

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?

About So You Want to Talk About Race
In So You Want to Talk About Race, Ijeoma Oluo guides readers of all races through subjects ranging from intersectionality and affirmative action to “model minorities” in an attempt to make the seemingly impossible possible: honest conversations about race and racism, and how they infect almost every aspect of American life.
