Exploring Together: A Focus on Race and Racism6:00 p.m.7:00 p.m.Digital Meeting

Talking about race and racism is often uncomfortable, sometimes confusing, and almost always difficult. Salem Public Library invites you to get uncomfortable with us as we provide an opportunity for community members to do the important work of exploring race and racism in America. In this series of community conversations, staff will act as facilitators and work to establish a respectful and supportive space for everyone to contribute their thoughts, share questions, and explore the ideas from the readings and videos. Each of the three discussions will have its own focus: Session 1: Systemic Racism and White Privilege (July 28-DONE) Session 2: Race and the Criminal Justice System (August 25) Session 3: The History of Racism in America and Oregon (September 22) We ask that you prepare for these discussions by reading or watching at least one entry from the suggested resources list. Sign up to receive the Zoom login information by email on the morning of each discussion: https://bit.ly/exploringtogether Suggested resources for Race and the Criminal Justice System Books: Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson The New Jim Crow by Michelle Alexander Locking Up Our Own: Crime and Punishment in Black America by James Forman Jr. Check availability on: cloudLibrary (https://ebook.yourcloudlibrary.com/library/salempl/Featured) Library2Go/Libby (https://library2go.overdrive.com/) Articles: There is Overwhelming Evidence that the Criminal Justice System is Biased.
