Anti-Racism Film Series with Dr. Tara Hayes Online

As part of the City of Huntington Woods anti-racism plan, we invite you to join us for a film discussion with series with Dr. Tara Hayes, the Book & Film Club Professor. Anti-racism education allows us to stand as effective allies. Intended as an opportunity for learning and deepening our understanding, we aim to create a respectful dialogue focused on helping participants become effective allies.

To participate, screen the film in advance of the discussion and then join us at 6:30 pm via Zoom. Please register for each program and a meeting link will be emailed prior to the meeting. Each has been paired with a chapter from Dr. Kendi’s best-selling How to Be an AntiRacist. Participants are encouraged to read it in its entirety.

Unaccompanied Adults

During children’s programs parts of the Library are reserved for children, their parents or responsible adult caregivers. No adult (with the exception of staff and City personnel) may register to attend a children’s program, or be admitted to a children’s program, unless accompanied by a child. Out of concern for the safety of young patrons, adults who are unaccompanied by a child or children in the children’s program area may be questioned by staff, and may be asked to leave the area.
