Dilley Professor of African American Studies and Professor of American Studies at Yale University, and Donna Daniels, Ph.D., Management Consultant and Cultural Anthropologist.
Community members are encouraged to read Kindred in advance of the book club discussion. A number of copies of the book are available at the library.
At this first meeting, the group will also discuss future book selections and determine a schedule. We hope to see you there!
