Book Discussion: <em>Our Black Year</em> by Maggie Anderson

Saturday, August 26, 2017 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm

Author Maggie Anderson and her family's determination to purchase only from black-owned businesses for a full year revealed hard truths about the depth of the black wealth disparity and economic disenfranchisement. Her book, Our Black Year: One Family's Quest to Buy Black in America's Racially Divided Economy, chronicles the journey, which prompted her to create the Black Empowerment Experiment Foundation in 2012.

One Sunday afternoon in Southern California, Bert Cousins shows up at Franny Keating's christening party uninvited. Before evening falls, he has kissed Franny's mother, Beverly, thus setting into motion the dissolution of their marriages and the joining of the two families. Spanning five decades, best-selling author Ann Patchett's Commonwealth explores how this chance encounter reverberates through the lives of the four parents and six children involved.
