Three Reading Circles
Dates and location to be announced
Facilitator: Mel Ptacek, PhD
Racial Justice Rising will host three reading circles in October to examine the history and continuing effects of Brown v. Board of Education and our nationís failed efforts to achieve racially integrated public schools.
Each circle will discuss different short readings as we explore the complex and shifting legacy of this difficult and sometimes violent attempt to achieve racial integration across the United States.
We hope you can join us for one or more of the reading circles. Please contact us to learn more.
This project is a collaboration with MassHumanities' statewide initiative, The Harvest: Brown v Board, North & South.
