Peace & Conciliation Proj
Don't Let COVID-19 Impede Your Antiracism Education
Due to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, all Peace & Conciliation Project community education events are postponed until further notice. Our events will be rescheduled as soon as possible. In order to ensure those who were previously registered for the “How to Be an Antiracist” Book Discussion event are able to attend the rescheduled program, we will host this event on two separate dates. We look forward to resuming our programming at the earliest possible date.
While you are sheltering in place, we hope you will continue reading and deepening your own personal antiracist journey. Below are some resources to support you in this journey.

A timely, crucial, and empowering exploration of racism—and antiracism—in America
This is NOT a history book.
This is a book about the here and now.
A book to help us better understand why we are where we are.
A book about race.
The construct of race has always been used to gain and keep power, to create dynamics that separate and silence. This remarkable reimagining of Dr. Ibram X. Kendi's National Book Award-winning Stamped from the Beginning reveals the history of racist ideas in America, and inspires hope for an antiracist future. It takes you on a race journey from then to now, shows you why we feel how we feel, and why the poison of racism lingers. It also proves that while racist ideas have always been easy to fabricate and distribute, they can also be discredited.
Through a gripping, fast-paced, and energizing narrative written by beloved award-winner Jason Reynolds, this book shines a light on the many insidious forms of racist ideas—and on ways readers can identify and stamp out racist thoughts in their daily lives.
Read STAMPED: Racism, Antiracism, and You
We live in the age of racialized mass incarceration. An age in which tens of thousands of human beings are caged in solitary confinement every day. Some for decades at a time. The Darkest Hour exposes the inhumane impact of extreme isolation experienced by those incarcerated nationwide.
Through intimate interviews with death row survivors such as Nanon Williams, now serving life in general population, and the last words of men such as Napoleon Beazley before execution by the state of Texas, these stories reveal the savage inner workings of our justice system.
Narrated in hip hop and spoken word by artist/activist Bryonn Bain, creator of the groundbreaking multimedia production "Lyrics from Lockdown" (executive produced by Harry Belafonte), the film’s soundtrack, the "Life After Lockdown: Digital Mixtape," features founding hip hop DJ Kool Herc and an all-star cast of legends.
The Darkest Hour is a call to action for a complete paradigm shift. We will either be ruled by passionate cries for punishment, or heal ourselves with the compassion required to repair a broken nation.
