Please join us for our next Comboni (Virtual) Book Club – 7 p.m. EST, Thursday, July 16.
This month we are reading I’m Still Here: Black Dignity in A World Made for Whiteness. About this book: “From a powerful new voice on racial justice, an eye-opening account of growing up Black, Christian, and female in middle-class white America.
Austin Channing Brown’s first encounter with a racialized America came at age 7, when she discovered her parents named her Austin to deceive future employers into thinking she was a white man. Growing up in majority-white schools, organizations, and churches, Austin writes, “I had to learn what it means to love blackness,” a journey that led to a lifetime spent navigating America’s racial divide as a writer, speaker and expert who helps organizations practice genuine inclusion.”
Due to the ongoing pandemic we are meeting virtually using Zoom Meetings. If you would like to join the conversation please email Lindsay Braud at firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the Book Club email list. Several days before the book club, we will send an email with a link to the Zoom Meeting.
This lively book club often includes some of our missionary priests, staff, and friends. We hope you’ll join us! And bring your favorite drink and snacks. We do love to see what everyone is enjoying. Father Joe will probably be enjoying some Chianti! 🙂
