Black History Month session

Last week we had the second session of our Reading Club. We took the opportunity to talk about the causes and consequences of racism in the United States. We also had a look at the different achievements and backlashes throughout its history. We discussed Danielle Evan’s story with a focus on the main character, Claire, whose behaviour and accountability (or lack of it) created a huge conflict. The story shows how small transgressions become unintended acts of damage and defiance and grow out of proportion due to social-media-fueled controversies. We finished the session talking about «Redlining», a discriminatory practice in the United States and Canada by which  neighbourhoods  with a majority of Black residents are marked as risky investment options.  As a result, these redlined areas become underdeveloped while their residents become poorer.
