with our friend Josh
this summer we want to invite you to join us in broadening our awareness and un-learning.
Our first choice was an obvious one, considering the recent momentum in #BlackLivesMatter movement. We are looking to unlearn together.
"This book shines a light on the many insidious forms of racist ideas--and on ways readers can identify and stamp out racist thoughts in their daily lives."
"This is NOT a history book.
This is a book about the here and now.
A book to help us better understand why we are where we are.
A book about race."

Our book club is a safe, honest and open virtual environment.
Each season we will select a new book to read that challenges us to unlearn prejudice social bias in a non judgmental space.
Everyone is welcome to join and encouraged to participate. However hate and/or malicious speech will not be tolerated and will result in removal from the club.
