BLACK HISTORY MONTH
Our FCC Racial Justice team suggests you consider reading a book regarding racism this month. Here are a few suggestions:
So, You Want to Talk About Race, Ijeoma Oluo – The author guides readers of all races through many subjects regarding race in an attempt to make the seemingly impossible possible: honest conversations about race and racism.
The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America's Great Migration, Isabel Wilkerson - Chronicles one of the great untold stories of American history: the decades-long migration of black citizens who fled the South for northern and western cities, in search of a better life.
CASTE, Isabel Wilkerson – Award winning book that examines the unspoken caste system that has shaped America and shows how our lives today are still defined by a hierarchy of human divisions.
The Fire Next Time, James Baldwin - 1963 bestseller gave passionate voice to the emerging civil rights movement—and still lights the way to understanding race in America today.
Mindful of Race: Transforming Racism from the Inside Out, Ruth King - Exploring a crucial topic seldom addressed in meditation…Ourselves as racial beings, the dynamics of oppression, and our role in racism.
