Want to meet other Gauchos who care about racial justice?
The UCSB Library is organizing student-led small group reading discussions for UCSB students to dive into the UCSB Reads 2021 book When They Call You A Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir by Patrisse Cullors and asha bandele. You’ll have the opportunity to explore themes of race, racism, social justice and the contributions of Black Americans in a small group setting. These groups will be opportunities for social and intellectual connections with other UCSB students outside of a classroom. All students will receive a free digital copy of the book.
Each group will meet with the same peers and student discussion leader two times. It is not necessary to have completed the book by the first meeting.
A follow up email will be sent once the groups are finalized. Please email email@example.com
with any questions.
Here are some tips from Dr. Michelle Grue of the UCSB College of Creative Studies for guiding book dicussions in a productive, thoughtful, and inclusive way. For more resources on facilitating talks about difficult topics, visit guides.library.ucsb.edu/ucsbreads2021
