This SSW Book Club meeting has been rescheduled from Wed Feb 20.
We will discuss Kevin Boyle's book Arc of Justice; A Saga of Race, Civil Rights, and Murder in the Jazz Age. This book tells the "electrifying story of the sensational murder trial that divided a city and ignited the civil rights struggle." It won the 2004 National Book Award for nonfiction.
On Nov 7, 2018, Jamon Jordan of the Black Scroll Network spoke at SSW. He provided an excellent overview of history and of structural racism, and then told the story of Ossian and Gladys Sweet. His presentation inspired our choice of this book.
You are welcome to join us whether or not you have attended before, and whether or not you have finished the book.
All members of the SSW community are invited. Feel free to bring your lunch.
