“Our humanity is worth a little discomfort, it’s actually worth a lot of discomfort.” – Ijeoma Oluo, So You Want to Talk about Race
This month, we are co-sponsoring with Confluence Health and the Community Foundation of North Central Washington to present bestselling and award winning author, Ijeoma Oluo, for a free virtual author program on Tuesday, August 18 at 7PM. We are also partnering with Wenatchee Valley College and the Wenatchee Valley Museum and Cultural Center and are so thankful for their support.
Ijeoma Oluo is the bestselling author of So You Want to Talk about Race, a hard hitting, user-friendly examination of race in America. Oluo guides readers of all races through subjects ranging from intersectionality and affirmative action to “model minorities” in an attempt to make the seemingly impossible possible: honest conversations about race and racism, and how they infect almost every aspect of American life.
We are proud to help provide a platform for our region to engage in important conversations about race in America and to learn together. Hear from our Executive Director, Barbara Walters, and Adult Services Manager, Amanda Brack as they share a little more about the book and event.
So You Want to Talk About Race is available as an eBook and eAudiobook through our Overdrive service. It is also available as an eAudiobook through our Hoopla service. Get started at www.ncrl.org/ebooks.
