Please join us over the course of the next three months in discussing three books written at different historical points in time: Invisible ManThe Souls of Black Folk and The Hate U Give .
All three books are a deep and rich exploration of race and American history. Join us as we take a look at the intersection of history and the present and what these three books can teach us today.
