Join us for a guided discussion and exploration of Between the World and Me, by Ta-Nehesi Coates, a MacArthur “genius” grant winner and national correspondent at The Atlantic. Facilitated by Suzanne Feinspan, this workshop will explore the book’s major themes, how we connect with it individually, and how we might connect with it as Jews. Written as a letter from Coates to his 15 year old son, the book provides an unflinching portrait of the reality of being a Black man in the US today. Come whether you’ve read the whole thing, a chapter, or just a page! All are welcome to participate in this conversation but the workshop is primarily designed as an exploration of these concepts for those who identify as white.
A light vegetarian dinner will be served.
