Reading for Understanding


Monthly virtual book discussions hosted by the Dock C. Bracy Center for Human Reconciliation


As a learning organization, the Dock C. Bracy Center for Human Reconciliation seeks to provide opportunities to promote understanding and empathy. Book discussions provide participants with a shared experience and an opportunity to engage with others.


The Center’s Reading for Understanding monthly book discussions are free and have two requirements: Read the book and make time for the discussion.


What should a participant expect?


Participants should expect an email with a read-ahead presentation and meeting credentials the Monday preceding the event. All book discussions are two hours and use Zoom breakout rooms to create small discussion groups. We start together as a large group (7-7:10pm), briefly return to a large group at the half-way point (7:50-8pm) and conclude as a large group (8:40-9pm). Virtual doors open at 6:45pm, unless otherwise noted. All times are Eastern Standard Time.


Support black-owned or independent bookstores.


Many black-owned and independent bookstores now offer shipping. Find a store in your area and shop in-person or online.


Participants are encouraged to continue learning through the Center’s Eradicating Racism: A Path Forward learning series.
