Shortly after a February 7, 2008 tragic shooting at the Kirkwood City Hall, a group of citizens formed the Community for Understanding and Hope (CFUH), to host dialogues about race in Kirkwood. From this group the CFUH Book Group was formed. The group meets the third Thursday of each month at either the Kirkwood Public Library or at Eliot Chapel.
Founded in 1969, Left Bank Books is an independently-owned bookstore located in the Central West End.
The events in Ferguson have affected everyone in our community. This reading group is an attempt to add some civility and context to the mix by exploring race, not only in St. Louis, but America as a whole.
Women’s Voices achieves our mission through education and advocacy. Our program committee selects a variety of knowledgeable speakers to provide information on a variety of social justice issues. Programs are held on the second Thursday of each month, September through May, at 7 p.m. at The Heights (Maplewood-Richmond Heights Community Center), 8001 Dale Avenue, Richmond Heights 63117. Programs are open to the public, free of charge, and guests are welcome.
Every other month, a high quality, carefully vetted book focusing on racial justice issues will be selected for participants to read and discuss. There will be a discussion of each book prior to our monthly programs (Sept-May) from 5:30-6:30. Please click on the website below to get the information on upcoming meeting dates.
