"Vineyard Reads: Racial Justice," a MVNC's book discussion group in collaboration with the West Tisbury Library,  focuses on important readings and challenging views on race and racial attitude awareness. Participants will read, discuss, reflect on three books, and conclude with a wrap-up and future action planning session. 


This book program is part of MVNC's series of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion anti-bias educational programs that aim to engage the Island community in productive conversations on racial attitude awareness, privilege, bias, institutional racism, and micro-inequities. The group is open and free to Vineyard nonprofit Boards, leaders, staff and volunteers, and interested individuals of the Island community.

Debby Irving sensed inexplicable racial tensions in her personal and professional relationships. As a teacher, she found wondering what she was missing. Then, in 2009, one "aha!" moment launched an adventure of discovery and insight that drastically shifted her worldview and upended her life plan. In Waking Up White, Irving tells her often cringe-worthy story with such openness that readers will turn every page rooting for her-and ultimately for all of us.
