Some additional info

Hi! This is Leeza again, here to give you some more information about the book club. Unfortunately, since I own this website, only I can make blog posts. However, If you’d like to post something on the GovReaders website, whether it’s a revelation from the book, or a discussion question you’d like to see addressed at the next meeting, you can use the “Contact” page to send me a message, and I will be sure to post for you it as soon as possible. I’m not exactly a web designer, but I was able to learn enough to make this GovReaders hub for us. Sorry if some things on the website aren’t quite working, hopefully I will learn how to use everything eventually!

I’d like to address the fact that none of the moderators for this social justice-themed book club are black. Many people, myself included, think that black voices should be at the forefront of social justice projects, because they have experienced the injustices in question firsthand. I want to make sure it’s clear that Faith and I aren’t “leaders”, we just create the space. We aren’t trying to project our voices, but rather the voices of the black authors. And using books by black authors is a perfect way to hear directly from black voices without exploiting black people for their energy and their time. In fact, we’re trying to do the exact opposite: we’d like to amplify the voices of black authors and make sure their work did not go to waste.

That leads me to my next point! Another great way to support black people during this time and to also support small business who are being hit the worst because of the pandemic is to buy books from black-owned bookstores! Here is a list of them: https://lithub.com/you-can-order-today-from-these-black-owned-independent-bookstores/

I also know that a black-owned bookstore just opened up in Minneapolis: Black Garnet Books. Personally, I’ll be buying our next book from them. Here is their website: http://BlackGarnetBooks.com And here is their twitter:

Ok! Finally, I’d like to remind our members that today is… or was… July 1st, which is our first official day of reading! As I’m writing this post, though, it’s after midnight… building this website took all day!! No worries, though, if you haven’t joined yet, you can join at any time whatsoever. It will be on you, though, to get the book and read it. How To Be An Antiracist isn’t necessarily a book with spoilers, so you can also join meetings even if you haven’t read everything yet. But, catch up for your own good! I’ll get the zoom invitation on the home page as soon as its scheduled. At our first meeting, we’ll also pick a new book to read so that people will have ample time to order it before we start reading!

Thanks so much for joining GovReaders, everyone. It’s so important for many reasons. Have a good day (or night, for me…)!

    Thanks for the advice on credit repair on this excellent site. Some tips i would tell people should be to give up this mentality that they may buy currently and fork out later. Being a society many of us tend to make this happen for many issues. This includes vacation trips, furniture, along with items we’d like. However, you’ll want to separate your current wants out of the needs. If you are working to boost your credit score actually you need some trade-offs. For example you’ll be able to shop online to save cash or you can look at second hand merchants instead of high-priced department stores pertaining to clothing.

    Thanks for the recommendations on credit repair on this amazing site. A few things i would tell people is always to give up the particular mentality they can buy today and shell out later. Like a society we all tend to try this for many issues. This includes getaways, furniture, and also items we wish. However, you should separate the wants out of the needs. While you’re working to raise your credit score make some sacrifices. For example it is possible to shop online to save cash or you can visit second hand retailers instead of pricey department stores regarding clothing.
