Book Group: So You Want To Talk About Race

January 15 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm PST

TYWCA welcomes you to a new book group to discuss 2019 YWCA Olympia Womxn of Achievement Keynote speaker Ijeoma Oluo’s New York Time’s best-seller, “So You Want To Talk About Race”. From Seal Press: “In this New York Times bestseller, Ijeoma Oluo offers a hard-hitting but user-friendly examination of race in America. Widespread reporting on aspects of white supremacy–from police brutality to the mass incarceration of Black Americans–has put a media spotlight on racism in our society. Still, it is a difficult subject to talk about. How do you tell your roommate her jokes are racist? Why did your sister-in-law take umbrage when you asked to touch her hair–and how do you make it right? How do you explain white privilege to your white, privileged friend? In So You Want to Talk About Race, Ijeoma Oluo guides readers of all races through subjects ranging from intersectionality and affirmative action to “model minorities” in an attempt to make the seemingly impossible possible: honest conversations about race and racism, and how they infect almost every aspect of American life.”RSVP in the ticket link!https://www.facebook.com/events/456088178626255/
