Join the college community in conversation about Coming of Age in Mississippi, an extraordinary personal memoir of a young black woman growing up in the segregated South and joining the struggle by blacks for voting rights.
About the Book
Marked for death by the Ku Klux Klan, Anne Moody survived to tell a story that resonates with today’s headlines about racial tensions and the targeting of African Americans by a white society.
The Community Read is organized by a group of students, staff and faculty.
This Wednesday, the Community Read presents a talk by Shoreline instructor Kathleen Boyd entitled Legacies of Hate: White Nationalism in the Pacific Northwest. She will discuss the history and legacies of white nationalism and white power groups with a focus on the Portland–Seattle corridor.
