Let's Talk Race Book Club
Ohio University Eastern has partnered with the Ohio Valley Underground Railroad Museum, Ohio Valley, WV Public Library, and St. Clairsville, OH Public library to offer the "Let's Talk Race" book club for our students and the community.
The ‘Let’s Talk Race’ book club was established in March 2022 by the Belmont County NAACP to educate the public about the history and issues of race relations in the United States. In January 2023 the Ohio Valley Underground Railroad Museum Director, Kristina Estle graciously accepted the lead role as coordinator for the book club.
The book club is open to the public, and we encourage all to join and be a part of the change. It all begins with discussion. The books include a variety of historical topics such as slavery, the Civil Rights Movement, various biographies of civil rights leaders and activists, and more covering today's issues such as racial injustices, mass incarceration, political reforms, and other racial discriminations that society experiences today. It is essential to educate oneself on the history of race to get a better understanding of today’s issues. The book club is also designed to foster discussions due to the fact that change can not happen without the ability to discuss race.
The Let's Talk Race Book Club meets the third Monday of each month from 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm.
For more information or to join, email Kristina Estle.
