Event Name:
Issues Exploration Book Club-Black Is the Body: Stories from My Grandmother's Time, My Mother's Time, and Mine by Emily Bernard

What role do stories play in how we see ourselves as women and family members?  Does race impact your self-identity?  How do we articulate the ways that difference-and similarity-shape our experiences in the world?  Please read the book, then join us for a discussion and reflection on this personal text written by a Black woman navigating her roles as teacher, mom and wife in a world that often does not match her self-identity.  To ensure the conversation covers everything each participant is interested in talking about, please submit discussion questions to Natalie Self at prior to the event. 

We will provide the greens and dressing for a salad. Please plan to bring a topping (think protein, other veggies, nuts, seeds, etc.) for a pot luck salad.  Bread and desserts are welcome too. Alcohol-free beverages will be served.
