February 2021 Book

The February Book Club meeting will be held from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm on February 18th. This month's selection is: 
The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead.

The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead introduces Cora, a young African American woman who journeys to freedom from the antebellum South on a fantastically imagined physical—rather than metaphorical—railroad. Told in episodes, the places and people Cora encounters provide her and the reader with profound revelations of the impact of enslavement. Given the enduring struggle of this country to grapple with the treatment of Africans in America, The Underground Railroad is a critical text for opening up conversations about the lasting legacies of slavery.
