Our spring event is scheduled for Wednesday, April 7 and Thursday, April 8, 2021. The program outline will be available soon.
Launched in fall 2020 by faculty and staff wishing to sustain and deepen our understanding of systemic inequalities and their impact on our communities, the book club includes monthly selections of relevant books. Towards the end of each month, community members will have an opportunity to join colleagues to discuss selected books.
Please consider ordering your books through Frugal Books, an independent, Black-owned bookstore in Roxbury, MA
