Virtual Program: ABHM Book Club | I’m Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness

November 17 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

America’s Black Holocaust Museum’s founder, Dr. James Cameron, was an avid reader and inspiring writer and educator. To this day, he is the only known survivor of a lynching to write and publish a memoir about such an experience. In his honor, we have created this pilot book club to bring together a community of people of all backgrounds to learn about and discuss our collective past, modern manifestations of racism, and how we can create racial repair, reconciliation, and healing for a better future.

Please join ABHM staff and fellow book lovers as we read and meet virtually to discuss select fiction and nonfiction books aligned with our mission and those that celebrate and center Black narratives.

This book club is free and open to all who are able to attend, although the books will need to be purchased by each participant. Please check for the book selection locally at Boswell Books or at your nearest library branch where available or anywhere else that books are sold.

Please sign up using the link above to let us know that you will be reading our first selection, I’m Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness by Austin Channing Brown, over the next month and will be attending our discussion of this book on November 17th at 6 PM CST via Zoom. We will be sure to send out reminders, links, and any other necessary information to the email you provide.

Please email admin@abhmuseum.org with any questions.
