SFPL presents a Social Justice Book Club focusing on antiracism and understanding systemic racism and inequity.

We will be discussing Citizen by Claudia Rankine. Citizen is a collection of essays, poetry and images that expose the racial tensions in twenty-first century life, highlighting the slights, slips of the tongue and intentional offensives pervading the home, school and popular media. Citizen is a powerful testament to the individual and collective effects of racism in our contemporary, often named "post-race" society.
