he School of Social Work is inviting current students, alumni, and field instructors to join our Racial Justice Club. The Racial Justice Club uses various media (e.g., books, film, podcasts) to educate ourselves and elevate the voices of those systematically and individually oppressed and persecuted in United States society. The Club selects a common work, we read, watch, or listen to the work on our own and then join together to participate in a virtual discussion. Our discussion is geared toward implications for our own lives/practices, our school and curriculum, and social work in general.
If you are a student and would like to help organize the Club, the first five students to email Dr. Keeney (email@example.com) expressing interest will receive a copy of October’s book!
For Fall 2020, we have two Clubs scheduled (October and December) which will focus on the following:
October: “Between the World and Me” by Ta-Nehisi Coates
December: “When They Call you a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir” by Patrisse Khan-Cullors and Asha Bandele
Please feel free to join one or both this Fall! If you have any questions about the Club, please email Annie Keeney at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will send out a Doodle Poll later to schedule October’s Club.
