About the Event
Are you ready to share your thoughts and questions about the books we've been reading? Do you have questions and need answers? Then join us for this online event to hear what others are thinking and learning. Let's keep this conversation going! Feel free to join us even if you have not completed the readings.
Educators and local leaders in the Tritown and Beyond are hosting a “Community Reads” focused on social justice. The goal of The Read is to collaboratively learn about the ways that racism plays out in society at large, as well as in the towns where we live. In addition, the hope is that through listening and learning from People of Color about lived experiences of racism, all of us will take steps to create a more equitable society—so that people of all races will be able to fulfill their potential—for the benefit of society as a whole.
Community Read Co-sponsors are: Mattapoisett Museum, Mattapoisett Free Public Library, the Tritown Against Racism group, YWCA Southeastern Massachusetts, the Elizabeth Taber Library, and The Joseph H. Plumb Memorial Library. Everyone is invited to participate.
