DEI Parent Group Book Discussion 11/10 7:00 - 8:30 pm
Posted 10/8/20

Dear MSD community,

 

Campolindo High School is hosting this quarter's DEI Book Club, and members of the MSD community are invited to participate. The last book club was a great experience, with excellent small group discussions facilitated by AUHSD faculty. Please join us for this upcoming Book Club!

 

Districtwide DEI Parent Group Book Discussion on Tuesday, November 10, from 7:00-8:30 p.m.

 

Campolindo’s Diversity Equity and Inclusion group will host this discussion of Across That Bridge by John Lewis.

 

In Across That Bridge, Congressman John Lewis draws from his experience as a prominent leader of the Civil Rights Movement to offer timeless wisdom, poignant recollections, and powerful principles for anyone interested in challenging injustices and inspiring real change toward a freer, more peaceful society.

The Civil Rights Movement gave rise to the protest culture we know today, and the experiences of leaders like Congressman Lewis, a close confidant to Martin Luther King, Jr., have never been more relevant. Despite more than forty arrests, physical attacks, and serious injuries, John Lewis has remained a devoted advocate of the discipline and philosophy of nonviolence. Now, in an era in which the protest culture he helped forge has resurfaced as a force for change, Lewis' insights have never been more relevant. In this heartfelt book, Lewis explores the contributions that each generation must make to achieve change.

We encourage you to purchase your book from Orinda Books. Ten percent of each sale of this book will go towards a charity determined by the Campo DEI Parents Group.
