This month our book club will meet online on April 20th at 6:30 pm to discuss How the Irish Became White by Noel Ignatiev. In this book, Ignatiev "... traces the tattered history of Irish and African-American relations, revealing how the Irish used labor unions, the Catholic Church and the Democratic party to help gain and secure their newly found place in the White Republic. He uncovers the roots of conflict between Irish-Americans & African-Americans & draws a powerful connection between the embracing of white supremacy & Irish "success" in 19th century American society."
Next month we will read and discuss Our Time Is Now by Stacey Abrams.
You can order your copy of How the Irish Became White or Our Time Is Now from Books and Company (Sofievej 1, 2900 Hellerup) They do not have any copies of "Our Time is Now." They ordered one for me, but can order others, which typically take 2-3 days for delivery. Pick up at the store.
Join the DA-Denmark Black Caucus and Youth Caucus, on April 27th from 7-8:30pm for our virtual event, Climate Justice is Racial Justice, a Discussion with Jacqueline Patterson. The event will begin with a short presentation and lead into a discussion with Jacqueline Patterson about the intersection of race, climate change, and electoral politics. Jacqueline Patterson is the Director of the NAACP Environmental and Climate Justice Program.
