Burning Issues Book Club – “A Terrible Thing to Waste” by Harriet A. Washington
May 31 @ 12:00 pmFree
Welcome to the Burning Issues Book Club, founded by @renatebakes! This book club has been formed to help facilitate our education on important topics facing humanity. Humans have historically been (and continue to be) horrible to each other, to our home, and to the other organisms that share this planet with us. We know things need to change, but many people aren’t sure where to start. This book club is a place for learning and personal growth within a safe online community to help us navigate and implement positive social change in the real world.
Our May book is “A Terrible Thing to Waste: Environmental Racism and Its Assault on the American Mind” by Harriet A. Washington. A “powerful and indispensable” (Gerald Markowitz) look at the devastating consequences of environmental racism — and what we can do to remedy its toxic effects on marginalized communities.
