Race and Inclusion

Racial Justice and Inclusiveness Committee

The Friends of Roslindale Branch Library have formed a Racial Justice and Inclusiveness Committee to plan educational events, discussions, and presentations related to race, ethnicity, religion, and culture.  We also created a special list of books related to these topics.

Schedule of Events

The Bluest Eye Book Discussion
Saturdays, November 2, 16 & 23, 1:15 - 3 PM
JP Branch Library, 30 South St

We will remember the life and legacy of Toni Morrison by discussing her first novel, The Bluest Eye, which asks powerful questions about race, class, and gender with the subtlety and grace that have always characterized her writing. The discussion will be led by local educator Josh Frank and books will be available to borrow from the JP Branch Library soon. Please register for the discussion by calling JP library at (617) 524-2053 or in-person at their library's circulation desk so they will know how many people to expect for attendance. The discussion is co-sponsored by the Friends of JP Branch Library.
