The HART Book Club, launched in February 2022, is a student-focused space to discuss books related to and written by racialized people. As a branch of HART (the Department of History’s Anti-Racism Taskforce), the Book Club is committed to representation, respect, and empowerment for the diverse voices, experiences, expressions, and intersectional identities of racialized groups on campus. The Book Club seeks to foster critical thinking, accountability, and anti-racism among undergraduate and graduate students in particular through engagement with books around anti-racism, solidarity, equity, and creating safe spaces for learning.
To commemorate Remembrance Day, the HART Book Club will be reading What the Eagle Sees: Indigenous Stories of Rebellion and Renewal by Eldon Yellowhorn and Kathy Lowinger (available through the UW catalog). We will meet on Friday, November 18th, 2022, from 5:30pm to 7pm on Zoom to discuss this book. Registration is available at this link.
