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 May discussion will focus on the podcast 16 Shots, produced by WBEZ Chicago and The Chicago Tribune, exploring “the fatal police shooting of Laquan McDonald, the trial of Officer Jason Van Dyke, and the troubled relationship between African-Americans and the Chicago Police Department.” If you need assistance downloading the podcast, contact us at the Information Desk.
