This Year’s Theme:
Institutional Racism: The Stories Behind the Numbers
The YWCA of Greensboro is hosting a virtual book club as part of our annual theme on how institutional racism impacts the lives of women and girls of color. We will be reading three books this year. Each book sheds light on real-world experiences of racism and discrimination as well as the strength that exists in families, communities, and the women themselves.
We are reading an important book by a nationally recognized author. Please join us!
