Racial Justice Book Group

We'll be reading Parables from the Outskirts of Polite Society by Evanston's own Jerome Summers, lifelong resident and twice-elected D65 school board member. Summers will offer a brief introduction to his book and Dr. Gilo Kwesi Cornell Logan will provide some historical context about Evanston's 5th ward.

Register to attend at bit.ly/2EWaD3e.
Deadline is April 18 at 5pm.

Evanston location will be announced soon!
