Racial Justice Book Club

In partnership with the Topeka & Shawnee County Public Library, YWCA Northeast Kansas hosts a community book club that will feature books written by Black, Indigenous, and people of color. All are invited to participate in monthly meetings to discuss the books and relevant social issues within our community. Discussions will be guided by Romae Isom, YWCA Racial Justice Program & Training Coordinator, and Miranda Ericsson, Readers Librarian at the Topeka & Shawnee County Public Library.

In 2023, our book club meets online on the fourth Tuesday of every month from 7:00 to 8:30 PM via the online web conferencing platform Zoom. Although it is preferable to have read the book prior to the sessions, please feel free to join even if you haven’t read the book.

YWCA Northeast Kansas is once again joining sister YWCAs across the nation in taking the YWCA Racial Justice Challenge. This is a four-week virtual program designed to help us build daily social justice habits. Read more about the Racial Justice Challenge by clicking here. It starts on June 5th.

Instead of reading a book for June, Racial Justice Book Club will be taking the challenge together! Register for the Challenge by clicking here. We will still meet on the 4th Tuesday, June 27th, to discuss what we are learning during the challenge. This meeting will be in person at the Topeka & Shawnee County Public Library.
