Research sparks Conversation

Peterborough resident, Allan Davis, recently began working with Assistant Director Mary Hubbard to explore his questions regarding reparations. Davis, an educator and social justice advocate, enjoyed Mary’s assistance in finding great sources and connections via the local universities and colleges.

His research sparked conversations that led to the idea for our upcoming community workshop – Talking about Race: Staying Curious, Moving Forward and Being Part of the Solution, which will be held at the Library on June 25th at 7pm. This research project has come full-circle and now is an opportunity for all in our community to learn something new.

Here is some recommended reading either before or after the workshop:

Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America  by Michael Erik Dyson

“The Case for Reparations” by Ta-Nehisi Coates published in the Atlantic Magazine.
