Racial Justice Action Group’s Book Club

H-CAN’s Racial Justice Action Group’s book club will be discussing the following books over the next several months at the Haverford Township Library. The group meets in the upstairs board room from 7:00 p.m. -8:30 p.m. on the designated night.

Future Racial Justice book club books to be discussed.

Future H-CAN Racial Justice book club discussions:

  • November 4th from 7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. at the Haverford Township Library in the Board Room (upstairs).

    • The Nickel Boys, by Colson Whitehead. Colson Whitehead brilliantly dramatizes another strand of American history through the story of two boys sentenced to a hellish reform school in Jim Crow-era Florida. Based on the real story of a reform school in Florida that operated for one hundred and eleven years and warped the lives of thousands of children, The Nickel Boys is a devastating, driven narrative.
      This public book club is open to anyone who has a love of books and a love of humanity! Come to share, learn, and discuss with a group of people who are committed to working together to create a more racially just society. Invite a friend and feel free to share with other groups who may be interested in attending!
