Vineyard Reads: Racial Justice, a Martha's Vineyard Nonprofit Collaborative book discussion group in collaboration with the West Tisbury Library, focuses on important readings and challenging views on race and racial attitude awareness. Participants will read, discuss, reflect on three books, and conclude with a wrap-up and future action planning session.
This book program is part of MVNC's series of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion anti-bias educational programs that aim to engage the Island community in productive conversations on racial attitude awareness, privilege, bias, institutional racism, and micro-inequities. The group is open and free to Vineyard nonprofit Boards, leaders, staff and volunteers, and interested individuals of the Island community.
Author David Silverman will help discuss his book, Faith and Boundaries, and examines how the Wampanoag Indians' adoption of Christianity and other selective borrowings from English culture contributed to Indian/English coexistence and the long-term survival of Wampanoag communities on the island of Martha's Vineyard, even as the racial barrier between peoples grew more rigid.
