Race Matters Book Club

August 24 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

“Jay-Z – Made in America” by Michael Eric Dyson is the next book in ACTS (Alliance of Communities Transforming Syracuse) Race Matters Book Club session scheduled for 7 p.m. Monday, Aug. 24.

Henry Louis Gates calls this small volume “A poignant portrait of one of hip hops’ most intriguing figures. A TOUR DE FORCE.”  If you haven’t explored the world of music & poetry buried in hip hop, and its key purveyor, here’s your chance. As a sociology professor and public intellectual, Michael Eric Dyson is the perfect person to unravel its mysteries.

ACTS’ interfaith discussion group is open to all, and you may choose to participate only once or every month. Peter Sarver, ACTS Coordinator for Transformational Reading Groups, will co-facilitate with Dr. Ednita Wright, professor at Onondaga Community College, for the August gathering.  To register for the Aug. 24 session on Jay-Z, email petersarveracts@gmail.com.
