Angie Thomas Book Discussion and Author Keynote

The Hate U Give Book Discussion Set for Thursday, Jan. 31

Equity, Diversity and Inclusion is hosting a book club on The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, Thomas’ debut novel centers on 16-year-old Starr Carter, who for many years navigated living in two different worlds: the predominantly black community where her family lives and the predominantly white suburban high school that she attends. When one of her childhood best friends, who is unarmed, is killed by a police officer, Starr finds herself as the only witness and must decide if she will speak her truth and stand against police brutality, racial oppression and injustice.  Read More
