Season of Nonviolence: Book Conversations

Monday, 1/13/2020 from 12 p.m. to 1/29/2020 at 2 p.m.

Various dates and locations

For the Season of Nonviolence, COCC and several community organizations are hosting book conversations on Ijeoma Oluo’s New York Times bestseller, “So You Want to Talk About Race.” Oluo guides readers through various topics in an attempt to invite people from all identities to engage in conversations about racism, discrimination, intersectionality and more. Her honest and constructive approach facilitates difficult conversations through engagement and dialogue.

The national Season of Nonviolence honors the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Mahātmā Gandhi and others who believed in nonviolent efforts to advocate for human rights.
