We will continue to "break bread" together by having those who are able bring food or snacks to share.

We have decided that the focus of our discussion at the November meeting will be the article in the New York Times Magazine issue of August 14, 2019 on the 1619 Project. A link to the article is listed below. You're encouraged to read/reread the article. What are your thoughts? What are your questions?

"The 1619 Project is a major initiative from The New York Times observing the 400th anniversary of the beginning of American slavery. It aims to reframe the country's history, understanding 1619 as our true founding, and placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black Americans at the very center of the story we tell ourselves about who we are."
