Book Discussion: A Good Time for the Truth


Sundays, January 14 - 28
1:30 - 3:00 pm
Cost: Free (purchase book on your own)
Facilitated by Pat Buss, SOTV member

The Racial Justice Book Group will be reading and discussing "A Good Time for the Truth: Race in Minnesota," a selection of essays by sixteen of Minnesota’s best writers.

The book provides a range of perspectives on what it is like to live as a person of color in Minnesota. They give readers a splendid gift: the gift of touching another human being’s inner reality, behind masks and veils and politeness. They bring us generously into experiences that we must understand if we are to come together in real relationships. 

As surprising as it may be to some of us, Minnesota communities struggle with some of the nation’s worst racial disparities. As its authors confront and consider the realities that lie beneath the numbers, this book provides an important tool to those who want to be part of closing those gaps.
