Antiracist Reading and Praxis Book Group Guide

For SVCs book group

The Plan

Meet: We will meet every two weeks after having read two or three chapters.

Discuss: We will discuss anything in the chapters that is significant, interesting, or difficult to deal with. We can ask questions of one another or talk about discussion questions that will be developed for each meeting.

Prep: At the end of each meeting, one person will volunteer to create a short summary (5 minutes or so) of the next chapters for our next meeting. They’ll also be asked to develop some discussion questions. However, if they prefer not to, Libby and Allen will be happy to help.

How: If you want to be there for the conversation but prefer to listen rather than talk, that is just fine! If you’ve never been part of a reading group before, this is a great one to start with because we are a friendly group, excited to explore complicated ideas. Want to read and come to just one meeting to see if it works for you? Awesome! We’ll be excited to meet you!

WHO

This group is for anyone who works on campus who is interested in learning more about antiracism and antiracist practices, who is interested in reading with a group, and/or interested in challenging but respectful discussions about race and equity with colleagues.

  • If you’ve never been in a reading group or a group like this before, that’s great!  We invite new ideas and approaches to the group.
  • If you have, that’s great too!  We welcome experience and important perspectives.
