"Generations of Struggle"
Join us for a reading and discussion series, “Generations of Struggle.” Where we will present three critically acclaimed works, one film and two books, that provide a continuum from the aftermath of slavery to contemporary society, posing questions about our institutions, the changes in race relations, and the enduring challenges to equality for all citizens. The series will be facilitated by V. Elaine Thompson, Ph.D., Associate Professor of History at Louisiana Tech University. Appropriate for high-schoolers and adults.
Works discussed: Slavery by Another Name, film A Lesson Before Dying by Ernest J. Gaines Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates
