We are thrilled to have our second bestselling author join our book club - Fred Joseph. His book not only reflects on his life and is a conversation starter. It also aims to provide tools that we can all use as we interact with different facets of society. We strive to do better and create a better world. 

A famous advocate notes that “we must raise anti-racist kids who will never be perpetrators of or bystanders to white supremacy and who will never mistake tolerance or appropriation for respect. Don't skip the painful parts--read every word.” (Chelsea Clinton)

Order the book now at The Lit Bar  (let’s support local businesses - it’s also available at other booksellers).

Note: We are launching this event during Black History Month. The exact date for the discussion with this best selling author is confirmed for MARCH 24 @ 7:30pm. Order the book now - read it - and plan to talk with the author on MARCH 24 @ 7:30pm.

The commission includes four members affiliated with the Democratic Party, four with the Republican Party, and five not affiliated with a major political party.
Sue Smith has been active with the commission, and will talk about the history of the commission, the vote to establish it, the role that citizens still have, and establishing communities of interest. Anqunette Sarfoh serves as a commission monitor, and will talk about the role of monitors.
LWV Detroit and the Detroit Public Library are partnering in talks promoting voter education and tools for action.
Link will be sent to registrants before the program.
