(Columbia, SC)— Richland Library celebrates Racial Justice Week January 15-19. Acknowledged with a proclamation from the Richland County Council in 2022, Racial Justice Week in Richland County serves as an opportunity for community members to reflect on the history, impact, and future of racial justice. Richland Library customers can anticipate virtual author events and learn ways to have engaging discussions, uniquely tailored for all ages, that encourage honest dialogue on injustices, anti-racism and diversity.
Following the week-long digital celebration, customers can visit Richland Library Main on January 25, at 6:00 p.m. for the latest installment of its ongoing Let’s Talk Race series, Let’s Talk Race: A Conversation with Richard Rothstein and Leah Rothstein as they present their new book Just Action. This conversation will be moderated by State Senator Tameika Isaac Devine.
Richland Library aims to help Richland County residents continue talking, listening, and learning more about themselves and others. Working actively to dismantle systems of racism, inequality, and oppression in all their forms, as a library system, it is unwavering in its dedication to fostering a community where everyone feels welcomed, valued, and represented.
