Join us in a discussion of the book “The Making of a Racist” by Charles B. Dew, professor of American History at Williams College in Massachusetts.

From the cover: In this powerful memoir, Charles Dew, one of America’s most respected historians of the South–and particularly its history of slavery–turns the focus on his own life, which began not in the halls of enlightenment but in a society unequivocally committed to segregation.

We’re arranging for copies to be available at the Rutland Library.

Thanks to the College of St. Joseph for openining their library to us!
