For many of us, race and racism are not easy topics to address, yet the Skokie Public Library along with local partners, found a way to start the difficult conversation and engage the community by weaving aspects of the topic into day-to-day activities and programs. Hear how Skokie Public Library and one of its partners, Niles Township High Schools District 219, discuss Coming Together: Voices of Race, a community program that provides residents the chance to weigh-in and share their thoughts and feelings on racism through events like reading groups, open discussions, exhibits and workshops that address and explore the topics of race and social equity.
