Program Description

Event Details

Do you want to be a part of the fight for equity, but don't know where to start? Join us for a monthly moderated discussion group focused on anti-racist literature and other media. All assigned materials will be freely available online with an FVRL library card.

This month, we will be focusing on white supremacy and privilege within the U.S. and how it shapes our society.

We will be watching the film, White Like Mewhich is based off the critically acclaimed novel by Tim Wise.

We will also be watching the documentary, White Right: Meeting the Enemy, which follows a Muslim filmmaker as she confronts the new "White Right" members at the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville. 

Both films are available through Kanopy with your FVRL library card.

To join this online program, you will need a computer, tablet or phone with a camera and microphone. The link to join the event will be emailed to registrants. A phone number will be included to allow you to use a phone as speaker and microphone, if necessary.
