This year, Columbia College continues our commemorative celebration and devotion to Dr. King's mission by joining the official National Day of Racial Healing events with an all-day Campus Read In. The Read In will begin at 9:00am in Edens Library Learning Commons and McNair Hall Lounge, where refreshments and comfortable seating will be provided for those who wish to gather together. The Campus Diversity Officer, Edens Library Staff, Director of Multicultural Affairs & Community Resources and Staff will be present throughout the day providing additional resources, conversation, and open hearts for those who wish to do the work for how we heal from racial injustice.
Campus community members are encouraged to bring a book promoting racial equity, healing, and visibility and join us in one of our gathering spots on campus. You are also welcome to join us virtually or anywhere you are by posting and tagging Columbia College SC on social media with #CCofSC and #HowWeHeal.
Don't have a book to read…that's ok because our friendly Librarians in Edens are here to help!
