Wednesday, September 19, 7-9pm, Upper Arlington Public Library [basement room B], 2800 Tremont Rd.

Join Equal UA in promoting an inclusive climate that encourages all people to feel welcome and participate fully within our community.

The president-elect [now the current president] of the United States openly called for segregation and deportation based on race and religion. Meanwhile, inequalities in education, housing, health care, and the job market continue to prevail while increased insecurity and fear have led to an epidemic of scapegoating and harassment of people of color. Yet, recent polls show that only thirty-one percent of white people in the United States believe that racism is a major societal problem; at the same time, resistance is strong, as highlighted by indigenous struggles for land and sovereignty and the Movement for Black Lives.

We will be discussing Uprooting Racism: How White People Can Work for Racial Justice, fourth edition [2016], by Paul Kivel. The Upper Arlington Public Library owns 13 copies of this book.

Uprooting Racism is a uniquely sensitive, wise, practical guide for white people struggling with their feelings about race.” [Howard Zinn, author of A People’s History of the United States].
