Join the May Penn State World Campus Alumni Book Club! This spring we are tackling what may be a difficult subject for some to talk about by reading the New York Times bestseller So You Want to Talk About Race by Ijeoma Oluo. The continued spotlight on racism in America has kept this important and user-friendly work at the forefront of its genre. The book has been described by reviewers as being “for everyone,” regardless of skin color. Each chapter is framed as a question that typically comes up in daily interactions, and Oluo answers with clear, constructive, and sometimes funny language to deal with prejudice, bias, and hyper-charged issues in the U.S.
The book is available for purchase at most major booksellers, or you may borrow it from your local library. The discussion is hosted by Amber Redmond, director of alumni relations.
