Book Whisperers: "Between the World and Me"
Join us for a Zoom meeting to discuss "Between the World and Me" by Ta-Nehisi Coates
In a profound work that pivots from the biggest questions about American history and ideals to the most intimate concerns of a father for his son, Ta-Nehisi Coates offers a powerful new framework for understanding our nation&;s history and current crisis. Americans have built an empire on the idea of race, a falsehood that damages us all but falls most heavily on the bodies of black women and men; bodies exploited through slavery and segregation, and, today, threatened, locked up, and murdered out of all proportion. What is it like to inhabit a black body and find a way to live within it? And how can we all honestly reckon with this fraught history and free ourselves from its burden?
Book Whisperers meet every 4th Tuesday at 7:00pm. New members are always welcome! Copies are available from the Arlington Public Library.

Instructions to join the Zoom meeting will be emailed the day of the meeting to all registrants.
