Each month we will read a different book that will have us examine different social injustices, stereotypes, and prejudices that exist in our current world. Whether it be an inspiring coming-of-age novel in the civil rights south, a true story of adversity challenging unjust laws, a beautiful picture book embracing all families, or a book of essays and prose from civil rights activists, this book club will explore all the facets of our shared humanity.
