Let’s Talk About Race: One Book – One Community
Nov. 9 - Jan. 24, 2021

We’re encouraging families, friends and co-workers to read STAMPED: Racism, Antiracism, and You by Jason Reynolds and Ibram X. Kendi. This program is designed to cultivate conversations around race and social justice based upon the shared reading experience of the greater Columbus community.

Through the reading of a singular book, the community can reflect together upon the institutional and systemic inequalities that have impacted our community and nation for far too long.

The program will conclude with a free virtual author talk featuring Jason Reynolds on Jan. 24, 2021 at 4 p.m. Watch for registration details soon.
