March 9 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
We will be discussing Nickel Boys by Colson Whitehead as well as the Pieces of Now exhibit at the Greensboro History Museum. Ronnie Grabon is leading the discussion. Contact Ronnie at firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP and get the Zoom link.
Nickel Boys won the 2019 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and describes life in a reform school from the point of view of a young black teenager. Whitehead based Nickel Academy on the real-life Dozier School, a Florida facility that ran for over a century, until a university investigation publicized its racist and abusive practices.
