National CASA/GAL Book Club, DEI Series: So You Want to Talk About Race by Ijeoma Oluo

We invite you to join us for the fourth book in the Diversity Equity and Inclusion series: So You Want to Talk About Race by Ijeoma Oluo.

In the author’s description of the book, she states, “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, author 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 impact almost every aspect of American life.
Join us! Independent reading and group discussions are from March 29 through May 7, with the author discussion scheduled for May 10 from 3 - 4 p.m. ET. Register here.
