History Book Club: “The Strange Career of Jim Crow”

February 13 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm EST

Join us for a discussion during Black History Month of a classic in African American history. First published in 1955 but with several updates, this book was a valuable resource for Martin Luther King Jr. to counter the arguments of segregationists during the height of the Civil Rights movement. I’ve been wanting to read this for a long time, and I hope you’ll join the reading and discussion.
Again, I am having some trouble loading a photo, but here is a link to the Goodreads page for this book so you can learn more.

Please note that we are at a different location this month – one of the meeting rooms at the Tenleytown-Friendship Library. It is just across the street from the Red Line Metro station. There is parking, but I am not sure what the price is. Also, there is a great Mexican restaurant across the street where I plan to have dinner after our discussion, and I hope some of you will join me.
