Participants are encouraged to read the current selection before the first discussion session. Orders placed with Amazon.com through a link on the Emerson website will benefit Emerson UU Church. http://emersonhouston.org/giving-overview/donate-while-you-shop/In January, Emerson Justice Advocates launched a new educational program, the Racial Justice Book Study Group, to examine and discuss some of the issues and problems underlying racism, its history and institutionalization, and racial injustice in America. In April, the group discussed its second book selection: winner of the 2015 National Book Award in nonfiction, Between the World and Me, by Ta-Nehisi Coates.

We invite all who are interested to join us in our study and exploration of the books we’ll be discussing in this program. Future titles will be announced soon. The group meets at 10 a.m. in Room 204.
