I'd like to thank all the participants who joined Book club for the reading of Freedom is a Constant Struggle by Angela Davis and look forward to continue our collective growth, learning and understanding. We are all very excited to welcome new members to our meetings! Ijeoma's book is thoughtful, personal and extremely practical in opening up our abilities to talk productively about race. Though the context of the book is very US-centric, its lessons are still globally applicable.
Feel free to forward this to anyone who'd be interested in joining! and stay safe during these trying times!
