Community Conversations about Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: Section 2
Please remember that you will need to register for each of the 5 sessions individually.
The Indiana Free Library and the League of Women Voters of Indiana County are collaborating to host community conversations about Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) by discussing books authored by Ibram X. Kendi and Jason Reynolds.
The aim of these community conversations is to increase our understanding of the principles of DEI with a focus on social justice issues as well as enable us to build support and connections in our community. The promotion of DEI is an initiative of AAUW (American Association of University Women), the American Library Association, and LWV (League of Women Voters.)
Community organizations and individuals including middle school and high school students, college students, parents, and community members are welcome to participate in the book group meetings.
Book group participants may choose to read either of the two books noted below. The books are aligned and organized into the same five sections.
• Stamped: Racism, Antiracism and You; Author Jason Reynolds
• Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America; Author Ibram X. Kendi
Multiple copies of both books are available to borrow from public libraries and organizations throughout Indiana County. The books were purchased with grant funding from the League of Women Voters of Pennsylvania.
Section 2: 1743-1826; Thomas Jefferson
