November Anti-Racism Book Discussion

November 03, 2020 | By Baltimore County Public Library

The November book selection for Baltimore County Public Library and Maryland Lynching Memorial Project's (MLMP) Anti-Racism Book Discussion is "The Lines Between Us: Two Families and a Quest to Cross Baltimore’s Racial Divide" by Lawrence Lanahan. Taking readers from church sermons to community meetings, to public hearings to protests to the Supreme Court, to the death of Freddie Gray—Lanahan deftly exposes the intricacy of Baltimore's hypersegregation through the stories of ordinary people living it, shaping it and fighting it—day in and day out. To learn more, listen to Lawrence Lanahan discuss his book in WYPR’s Sheilah Kast's interview.
