YOU are invited to join authors William “Sandy” Darity and Kirsten Mullen in a community reading of their book, “From Here to Equality: Reparations for Black Americans in the 21st Century” in a 4-part community book club. We will listen to, and learn from, the book’s authors, community elders and members, and artists.

We will come with our histories and understandings and will search together for what we can learn from each other about our shared histories that we might not yet know.  Our goal is to listen and learn together about how we can repair histories of racism and slavery in our Chapel Hill community and meet these in reparative ways.

Sponsored by Bridging the Gap with Danita Mason-Hogans
and the UNC Commission on History, Race, and a Way Forward

Who: Danita Mason-Hogans + Simona Goldin, co-Chairs, Equity in Schools Task force, UNC Commission on History, Race, and a Way Forward and Chapel Hill Community members

How: 100 free books are available for community members at the Chapel Hill Public Library.

If you’d like to donate a book for a community member, please purchase from Flyleaf and let us know.
