Title:Four Hundred Souls Race and Inclusion Book Discussion
Date:5/1/2021 - 5/22/2021
Address:Roslindale Branch of the Boston Public Library, 4246 Washington Street
Location:Roslindale, MA
Hours:9:15 AM - 11:00 AM

Contact Info:617-323-2343
Details:We will discuss the new collaborative book, Four Hundred Souls, a unique one-volume “community” history of African Americans. The editors, Ibram X. Kendi and Keisha N. Blain, have assembled ninety brilliant writers, each taking on a five-year period of that four-hundred-year span. The writers explore their periods through various techniques: historical essays, short stories, personal vignettes, and fiery polemics. They approach history from various perspectives: through the eyes of towering historical icons or the untold stories of ordinary people; through places, laws, and objects. We will also discuss the controversial debate around including antiracist education in schools, especially recent pushback against Kendi's books and the 1619 Project. The discussion will happen on Zoom and will be led by local educator Josh Frank. You can get the book from bpl.org.

Because this is a very popular book, we will have two sessions with 20 participants each on the three dates. Times: Morning session at 9:15-11 AM and an afternoon session at 2 -3:45 PM. To register, please email JP Branch librarian Laura Pattison at jamaicaplain@bpl.org. Please write "400 Souls Book Discussion" in the subject line when you RSVP.
You only need to register once for all three dates, even if you think you might miss a date.
Please choose the morning or afternoon time, and you will be registered for that same time for each date.
Laura will register the first 40 people, 20 each for the morning and afternoon groups. You will get an email if you are registered. If you do not get an email from Laura, please assume that you are not registered.
This discussion is co-sponsored by the Friends of the JP Branch Library.
