The history of race in America is both complex and painful. Learning about this history –our history- will help make the conversations we have with our families, with each other, and even with ourselves, deeper and more meaningful.
If you are feeling overwhelmed about how to begin, we would like to recommend a few titles to start your exploration. The Peterborough Town Library has a wealth of materials both in our physical and digital collections that can help individuals, families, and groups delve deeper. The titles below were selected because they are available in multiple forms. They are only meant to be a starting point.
In addition, the Library hosts a Race Conversation Group that meets once a month to discuss materials that they have read. If you would like more information about the group or further book suggestions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
