* pre-registered adult small group Join us as we discuss award winning author, Ibram Kendi’s book. We will meet 5 times, to discuss the five sections of the book. From the author’s website: “In this deeply researched and fast-moving narrative, Kendi chronicles the entire story of anti-Black racist ideas and their staggering power over the course of American history. Stamped from the Beginning uses the life stories of five major American intellectuals to offer a window into the contentious debates between assimilationists and segregationists and between racists and antiracists. From Puritan minister Cotton Mather to Thomas Jefferson, from fiery abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison to brilliant scholar W.E.B. Du Bois to legendary anti-prison activist Angela Davis, Kendi shows how and why some of our leading proslavery and pro-civil rights thinkers have challenged or helped cement racist ideas in America... In shedding much-needed light on the murky history of racist ideas, Stamped from the Beginning offers us the tools we need to expose them—and in the process, gives us reason to hope.” * pre-registered adult small group Leaders: Jackie Davis & Lance Gravlee Dates: Mondays, Mar 13, Mar 27, Apr 10, Apr 24, May 8 Time: 7:00-9:00pm Place: UCG Seminar B
