Dean’s Book Club Honoring Black History Month
The College of Public Health is committed to prioritizing diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice in everything we do. In honor of Black History Month, I would like to begin a Dean’s book Club open to all in our community—faculty, staff, students.
The book for February is All We Can Save: Truth, Courage, and Solutions for the Climate Crisis co-edited by Ayana Elizabeth Johnson. In choosing this book we acknowledge, honor, and celebrate the impact of black Americans on public health. The book is available in print, audible, and Kindle. If you have students who cannot afford the book, consider buying for them.
Please don’t feel obligated to join or pressure to read in its entirety. The book is comprised of short essays, poems, and illustrations. Like every book club I have joined, there are times when you read the book cover to cover, highlight phrases, ear mark pages. Other times you may run out of time to complete the book and only read part or none at all. Regardless, everyone can participate in the discussion of the book, have some good food, and appreciate the company and insights of all. Save the date for the discussion, March 2, at 4:00 p.m.. The sign-up sheet now closed. Contact Cindy Humphries for more information.
