  1. Social justice issues that range from girls in juvenile justice, criminal justice reform, and women’s issues are important to me.

    I love your idea of a book club that focuses on “…an inter-racial book group specializing in books about race in America.” That’s not just a ‘book club,’ but one that initiates discussion and I’m sure opens up dialogue. When you are together for awhile, as your BC is, people begin to trust each other and work together.

    A book I’m currently reading, “America’s Original Sin: Racism, White Privilege, and a Bridge to a New America, by Jim Wallis” is one which has resonated with me, especially with the “What can I do?” question.

    • Thanks! I just requested America’s Original Sin from the library so I can suggest it as a selection for our book club.

      We have developed a level of trust among the members of our book group and it means that we can have conversations that just don’t happen in other venues.
