June 16, 2020
Submitted By: Christine Grant

The UHart Community Book Read is intended to enhance learning and engagement through critical reflections and conversations that help combat racial disparities.

The discussions will be based upon the book Waking Up White and Finding Myself in the Story of Race by Debby Irving. It is the book Irving wishes someone had handed her decades ago. By sharing her sometimes cringe-worthy struggle to understand racism and racial tensions, she offers a fresh perspective on bias, stereotypes, manners, and tolerance.

Discussion sessions will be facilitated by educator and administrator Martha Brackeen-Harris, EdD. 

Next discussion dates and topic:

  • Wednesday, July 22 – Leaving My Comfort Zone

All sessions will be held from noon to 1 p.m.  
All are welcome to join in virtually via WebEx. Please see log in information below.
