Reading Club

Next Reading Event:
September 25: Anti-Racism Event
September 25th from 4-6pm. The topic for our September event is Anti-Racism.
The event will feature:
  • a guest speaker (Reymundo Quezada)
  • an examination of “voices” from the USD community on racism/anti-racism via a digital chalkboard
  • a discussion on 3 short texts in breakout rooms

In preparation for the event, we are asking the USD community (faculty, alumni, and students) to respond to this question:

  • What examples of racism/anti-Blackness have you experienced and/or witnessed @ USD?
  • Conversely, what examples of anti-racism have you experienced and/or witnessed @ USD?
You can add your voice (anonymously or not) by clicking here: Anti-Racism Digital Conversation .
Please follow the link below to access the readings we will discuss. We look forward to hearing your thoughts in our breakout sessions.
