Freedom Readers Book Club
September 19 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Hello Readers, Our September discussion will be held in Maggie McLaughlin’s barn at 6pm (note the 1-hour earlier time). We are discussing:
Biased: Uncovering the Hidden Prejudice That Shapes What We See, Think, and Do, by Jennifer Eberhardt.
You don’t have to be racist to be biased. Unconscious bias can be at work without our realizing it, and even when we genuinely wish to treat all people equally, ingrained stereotypes can infect our visual perception, attention, memory, and behavior. This has an impact on education, employment, housing, and criminal justice. In Biased, with a perspective that is at once scientific, investigative, and informed by personal experience, Jennifer Eberhardt offers us insights into the dilemma and a path forward.
Join us for a discussion of this amazing and thought-provoking book. Contact Mimi Alkire (email@example.com) if you are interested in attending.
