Join us for our Summer Book Club, to keep our racial justice work alive.

Sunday August 23, 12:30 to 2 pm.

Live meeting at Lighthouse for a small group (fingers crossed), with Zoom options available for overflow. Register here for the live option.*  Register here for Zoom.

For our upcoming book club, we’re keeping the discussion about racism and racial justice alive.

Lighthouse’s book club is one of the most inspiring and powerful events we run. If you haven’t participated, we encourage you to jump in. Even if you’ve only read the title of the book and a review or 2, you’re bound to be impacted by the honest and heart-felt conversations.

Our summer book selection is How to Be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi. 

This NYT bestseller reenergizes and reshapes the conversation about racial justice in America–but even more fundamentally, points us toward liberating new ways of thinking about ourselves and each other. In How to be an Antiracist, Kendi asks us to think about what an antiracist society might look like, and how we can play an active role in building it.

Join us for our honest and heartfelt discussion about race, racism, and wellness.

Please consider ordering your book from our friends at Loyalty Bookstore.

Ibram X. Kendi is one of America’s foremost historians and leading antiracist voices. He is a #1 New York Times bestselling author and the Founding Director of The Antiracist Research & Policy Center at American University in Washington, DC.  Learn more about the author here.

As part of our on-going work on understanding and dismantling racism and other systems that hold people down, we will take what we’ve learned and experienced and use this book as a platform to continue to examine our biases and attitudes. At Lighthouse, we work against white supremacy and work to elevate those who are oppressed and disadvantaged. Join us for this discussion to advance this community conversation in DC’s yoga community.

Free and open to all.

Leader: Suzanne Henley
