Since it is the holidays and I want to minimize any stress of obtaining a book to read for next month (along with too much reading) I have a link here to an article by Eli Saslow, the author of a book recommended to me by an African American friend Rising Out of Hatred: The Awakening of a Former White Nationalist. Let’s read the Saslow article for our next meeting. It is about a white nationalist racist who had a change of heart. In full disclosure I just skimmed it, but let’s give it a try and next time we are together we can pick a next read.

I am going to try to look at Ibram X. Kendi’s How to be an Antiracist and Ta-Nehisi Coates’ novel, The Water Dancer between now and then. Both look really good. I have been meaning to read this article too by Ta-Nehisi Coates, so I am including it, but it is optional (as if everything, right?)

Feel free to bring food for yourself. I am grateful for sharing this journey with you! For more information, email Cynthia Knowles at white-privilege@fmcquaker.org.
