    As part of our effort to delve into racial injustice, we'll be having a conversation focused on the history of Anti-Black racism. It will be an off-the-record discussion about how we got to where we are, as informed by articles and writings by Isabel Wilkerson, Ta-Nehisi Coates, and Jill Lepore. History is key to developing an understanding of racial injustice, and the writings that inform our conversation cover overlooked but deeply consequential aspects of American history, from the Civil War, through Reconstruction, the Great Migration, and more.

    Our conversation will take place via Zoom on Wednesday, August 19, beginning at 6:30 p.m. EST. Please RSVP here. A zoom link and dial-in information will be sent to individuals who have RSVPed a few days before the event. If you have any questions, please contact Erica Lai (president@apaba-dc.org) or Lloyd Liu (education@apaba-dc.org).

    We recommend reading or listening to the following articles and podcasts, though we encourage all to join, even if you only have time to read a portion of these.

    Articles: The Case for Reparations by Ta-Nehisi Coates and America's Enduring Caste System by Isabel Wilkerson

    Podcasts: Wilkerson's interviews about The Warmth of Other Suns: here and here / Lepore's interviews about These Truths: here and here.

    In addition, we encourage participants to draw insights from Wilkerson's The Warmth of Other Suns and Jill Lepore's These Truths. Neither book is required reading and we are mindful that each is lengthy.
