It's been said that those who do not know their history are doomed to repeat it. Are the most troubling parts of human history being repeated today? Come join 821 and your community members as we discuss the importance of learning from the past and why history matters! February's Tea and Truth discussion will be held on Tuesday, February 20th from 6:30 to 8:30 PM at the Goodwood Main Library in Room 102.
The 821 Book club is back! During the month of February, join us in reading about race and ethnicity issues worldwide as part of our 821 Book Club. We have included a list of books ranging from fiction to nonfiction, graphic novels and even news articles that are connected to the theme. This list also includes books for children and teenagers to read as well! Choose one of these choices or two of them (maybe all of them), and expand your roots to the world through literature!
UPDATE: Due to winter weather and subsequent library closures, Tea and Truth has been rescheduled to Saturday, January 27th at the Eden Park Branch Library from 3-5PM. As Baton Rouge residents, who are we, where do we come from, and where do we wish to go? We will be answering these questions at January's Tea and Truth dialogue.
Share yourself, your culture, your struggles, and triumphs with the people in your community at this month's Tea and Truth. Come join 821 and your
