The Community Book Read continues Wed., April 29 with chapters 10-14 of Anne Moody’s novel, Coming of Age in Mississippi. Join the campus community in the PUB room 9202 from 12:30-1:30 p.m. for a conversation about this extraordinary personal memoir of a young black woman growing up in the segregated South and joining the struggle by blacks for voting rights.
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.
**Free copies of Coming of Age in Mississippi are available only for students and classified staff who register to participate in the Community Read.
