County Library system hosting book discussions focused on race in America

September 1st, 2020 by WCBC Radio

The Allegany County Library System is hosting a series of book discussions to continue to engage our community in conversations about race in America.  As a follow-up to Dr. Ibram X. Kendi’s live discussion on How to Be Antiracist, we invite you to join us for a number of conversations centered around themes from Dr. Kendi’s other award winning book, Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America.  

Beginning tonight, September 1, discussions will be held at 7:00 PM every other week through the end of October, totaling five events.  Two hosts from the library will be joined by a co-host from the Allegany County Chapter of the NAACP to facilitate discussion around the week’s chosen theme. 


You can visit for more information and to register for the event.  Please register by 6:30 PM if you would like to join tonight's discussion.  


It is important that we develop opportunities to have open dialogue to discuss race within the community to inspire understanding and community healing.  The Allegany County Library System is committed to promoting equity, diversity, and inclusion

      Is that a racist statement? You going to go and listen to the discussion to see your sin?

    It’s the Democrats who started this whole race thing
    Just because Trump won. Can’t get over that they are losers.
    Wait to see what happens when he wins again.

    You know racism works both ways. Is any of blacks going to attend because there are a lot of blacks who are racist!

    Oh so it’s a sin to be white. I, nor my family, has done anything wrong towards blacks and I’ll be damned if I’m going to be ashamed of being white. I know many, white & black, who are racist so don’t assume just whites need to be indoctrinated to be sorry for what generations ago did, which was acceptable at the time. You can’t change history!
