400 YEARS OR RACISM
How did we get here? And where are we going? Folio presents a series of book discussions exploring the history of racism in the United States through literature. The 400 Years of Racism series, led by Folio librarian Lillian Dabney, will feature a curated selection of fiction, nonfiction and poetry. Discussions are hosted online and offered on the first Tuesday of every month.
This program is supported, in part by a grant from 4Culture.
