Big Read (Combined Destinies)

September 20, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

This is a series of activities and art exhibits, showings, and activities around the reading of a single book by the people of Monterey County.  This year’s selection is “Citizen” a collection of poetry presented in an innovative way. It deals with the realities of being a member of a community of color in modern America.

This talk is by two women who have worked in Monterey County on issues of justice and racial identity for many years. Their book is an examination of the effects of racism on a surprising group, white people. As the title says we have “combined destinies”. Come hear a talk that will definitely get you thinking about this always fascinating, yet difficult, topic.
