This reading and discussion series will explore the inception, inculcation, and function of race in American society. We will discuss this topic in order to improve our understanding of systematic, and social, inclusion and exclusion in American systems. Our goal is to tease out the implicit ways race serves as a real, and imagined, force in the lives of all Americans. This group will explore racial dynamics in America, expanding beyond the black-white binary and our understanding of race, and develop a deeper understanding of the interlocking forces of systemic racism. Dr. Jennifer Thompson Burns, Professor of Africana Studies at SUNY Albany, will lead this group. Copies of the books will be available after September 1. The first book the group will read is Ties That Bind: The Story of an Afro-Cherokee Family in Slavery and Freedom by Tiya Miles. Please have this book read for the September 28th meeting.
