The Fox River Valley Public Library District is hosting a community discussion at the Dundee Library on the first Wednesday of each month, continuing the dialogue started with our three-part series focusing on the 1619 Project. This is an open and supportive space to discuss important social issues with respect and compassion. Each session will focus on an article, book, podcast, or other media, to initiate dialogue on a specific topic. We engage with these issues to raise our social consciousness; to exchange ideas, understandings, and experiences. Refreshments will be served. Registration is encouraged, but not required.
Our April discussion will focus on the ProPublica article "Black Children Were Jailed for a Crime That Doesn’t Exist. Almost Nothing Happened to the Adults in Charge" by Meribah Knight, Nashville Public Radio, and Ken Armstrong. Printed copies are available upon request at the Information Desk.
