Re “Faith leaders issue BHM book challenge to Richmond area residents,” Free Press Feb. 4-6 edition:
I read with interest about the citywide reading of “Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents” by Isabel Wilkerson. A group of us started a slow read of “Caste” in January. We post any thoughts and additional information on our Slack channel #caste, which is on our Slack Account #neweyesonrace.
This is our third book. We began with “White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism” by Robin DiAngelo and followed that with “Richmond’s Unhealed History” by the Rev. Benjamin Campbell.
Anyone is welcome to join us if they want. All that is needed is an open heart and we can send an invite to join.
