WASN Book Club: May 2022

May 5 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

WASN recently hosted its first book club on Keisha N. Blain’s Until I am Free: Fannie Lou Hamer’s Enduring Message to America. We have further Book Clubs arranged for Friday 11 March and Thursday 5 May, details below:

May 5, 2022: The 1619 Project isn’t just an initiative or a subject of controversy, it is a confrontation with the truth. For many African American readers, it is a journey towards healing and reparation. For many other American readers, it is an acknowledgement of the wilful ignorance and amnesia about “America’s original sin” and the legacy of slavery at the heart of the national narrative. The Women in American Studies Network is ready to engage with these issues. Therefore, the WASN has selected The 1619 Project: A New American Origin Story for our online reading group on May 5 at 6:00 pm. If you’re interested in joining this discussion please register here
