Change Group Reading: The Black Agenda

The Frederick Friends Meeting Change Group has finished Caste and is starting The Black Agenda: Bold Solutions for a Broken System, edited by Anna Gifty Opoku-Agyeman.

The Black Agenda mobilizes top Black experts from across the country to share transformative perspectives on how to deploy anti-racist ideas and policies into everything from climate policy to criminal justice to healthcare. …

[It] is the first book of its kind―a bold and urgent move towards social justice through a profound collection of essays featuring Black scholars and experts across economics, education, health, climate, and technology. It speaks to the question “What’s next for America?” on the subjects of policy-making, mental health, artificial intelligence, climate movement, the future of work, the LGBTQ community, the criminal legal system, and much more.
