Greetings Everyone!
Given the state of the world and current events, I agree with some of our members who feel it's time to read of substance about people of color. I realize as I try to write this initial post that I am already struggling: should I say the author is a woman of color? Or a black woman? How many missteps can I make in a book discussion?

I want to try to make this a good discussion of learning for all of us, so I am going to start with page one of the book tonight and read it relatively at pace with the group. I'm Still Here has gotten consistently positive reviews for its thought-provoking nature. I'm jumping into this ready to think!

Since it is a book of essays, we could open threads on each one, but what are your thoughts? I'd love insight from anyone who has read it already! As always, feel free to email me at abbey@herrickdl.org

Thanks, All,
Abbey
