The Resilient Activist JEDI (Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion) Book Club

Are you interested in learning more about justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI) in America with a group of like-minded and open-hearted people?

Do you enjoy reading and discussing books that expand your understanding of yourself and the world?

If these questions touch a chord, then The Resilient Activist JEDI Book Club is for you!

For our September JEDI Book Club, we will be reading James Baldwin’s, Go Tell it On the Mountain. Below is a summary of the book provided by Goodreads:

Go Tell It On The Mountain, first published in 1953, is Baldwin’s first major work, a semi-autobiographical novel that has established itself as an American classic. With lyrical precision, psychological directness, resonating symbolic power, and a rage that is at once unrelenting and compassionate, Baldwin chronicles a fourteen-year-old boy’s discovery of the terms of his identity as the stepson of the minister of a storefront Pentecostal church in Harlem one Saturday in March of 1935. Baldwin’s rendering of his protagonist’s spiritual, sexual, and moral struggle of self-invention opened new possibilities in the American language and in the way Americans understand themselves.
