Join the Antiracist Book Club

First ABC Book of the Academic Year

You’re invited to read and discuss the first Antiracist Book Club selection of the 2022-23 academic year.

The reading for Blocks 2 through 4 is Minor Feelings by Cathy Park Hong. Cathy Park Hong, a poet and essayist, fearlessly and provocatively blends memoir, cultural criticism, and history to expose fresh truths about racialized consciousness in America. Part memoir and part cultural criticism, this collection is vulnerable, humorous, and provocative—and its relentless and riveting pursuit of vital questions around family and friendship, art and politics, identity and individuality, will change the way you think about our world.

All books are provided free of charge with your CC Gold Card and will be available for pickup on Sept. 30 at the CC Bookstore in the Yalich Student Services Center. Be sure to fill out this registration form prior to pick-up.

Please be aware that this book contains sensitive content including: descriptions of physical acts of violence, verbal assaults of a racist nature, events related to war, mental illness, and suicide.

The Antiracist Book Club is meant to be self-led and asynchronous. We encourage you to create space to discuss these books and their topics in the spaces you already inhabit (e.g., department meetings, athletics teams, student clubs/organizations, etc.) at your own pace. Check out our webpage on upcoming readings for this year.

Happy reading!
