Libraries Working Towards Social Justice
The Nevins Library is proud to partner with seven local libraries to present a variety of virtual programs addressing topics related to social justice issues.
These thought-provoking lectures and discussions will help Merrimack Valley residents (and beyond) to think about and cordially address current events and troubling issues in today’s society. Patrons are welcome to sign up for any of these programs, no matter which community you live in (or if you live in none of the communities), anyone and everyone is welcome (you can sign up through the links on this page, or go to the individual libaries’ pages to sign up).
Partner Libraries: Haverhill Public Library, Lawrence Public Library, Memorial Hall Library, Stevens Memorial Library, Burlington Public Library, Tewksbury Public Library, and Wilmington Memorial Library.
Upcoming events at other libraries:
First, watch this documentary on Kanopy (for Nevins Library patrons we can help you get a BPL eCard to use their Kanopy subscription).
It is a stunning reassessment of the American ideal of meritocracy and claims that we’ve entered a post-racial society, Wise offers a fascinating look back at the race-based white entitlement programs that built the American middle class, and argues that our failure as a society to come to terms with this legacy of white privilege continues to perpetuate racial inequality and race-driven political resentments today.
