"So You Want to Talk About Race" - Chapters 9 & 12 Book Discussion

"So You Want to Talk About Race" - Chapters 9 & 12 Book Discussion In-Person

Meeting at the Hailey Public Library.

Blaine County Amnesty International invites you to a community-wide book read of Ijeoma Oluo's So You Want to Talk About Race.

Join us for a discussion of Chapters 9 and 12: "Why can't I say the 'N' word?" and "What are microaggressions?"

This discussion will also feature a panel discussion organized by WRHS students.

Discussions are held every other week, from early February to April, and will alternate between The Community Library in Ketchum and the Hailey Public Library. Each discussion will focus on a different chapter of the book, and Wood River High School students will lead each discussion. All members of the community interested in building bridges and forming stronger relationships within our community and across ages and experience are invited to join. 

Free copies of Ijeoma Oluo's book are still available and can be picked up at The Community Library or at the Hailey Public Library, or by contacting the club directly at wrhsamnestyinternational@gmail.com.

Upcoming discussions: Monday, March 14 in Ketchum

The Building Bridges community read has been generously sponsored by the Youth Generosity Project.
