We are happy to announce the schedule for our Social Justice Book Club led by Dr. Alexander Deeb, Director of Campus Life for Inclusion! The first book we will be reading in this ongoing series is How to Be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi. Join us as we deepen our understanding of what it means to be “antiracist” instead of “not racist” through reading and discussing this New York Times bestseller! We welcome all Millikin students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community members to sign-up using the link below and share in this experience! Contact Dr. Deeb at adeeb@millikin.edu with any questions.

Note: All book club meetings will be conducted virtually in accordance with health and safety guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control and the Illinois Department of Public Health.
