Racial Reconciliation Library
Epiphany’s Racial Reconciliation Library Collection contains over 135 titles and is growing. It is located in the Fireside Room in the Parish Hall and is available to parishioners and the community. While the Fireside Room is closed during the pandemic, books can be obtained by emailing the collection’s curator, Sherilyn Peterson, at firstname.lastname@example.org. She will check out the book to you, deliver it, and pick it up when done.
We have very recent books as well as classics. Some of our newer titles include Caste/The Origins of Our Discontents by Isabel Wilkerson; How to be an Anti-Racist and Stamped from the Beginning by Ibram X. Kendi; White Fragility by Frances Kendall; These Truths by Jill Lepore, and An American Marriage by Tayari Jones.
Here are the links to the catalog: this link is alphabetical by author. This link is organized by subject. The subject categories are: (1) Black Voices and Spirituality; (2) History; (3) Justice; (4) Latinx; (5) Native American; (6) Novels, (7) Memoirs and Biographies; and (8) Privilege and Anti-Racism. As new donations are received, they will be catalogued and these links updated.
We also welcome book donations. If you’d like to donate a specific book please email Sherilyn at at email@example.com. If you’d like to donate a book but are not sure which one, please email Sherilyn for ideas–there are many we don’t have but would like to have. Thank you all who have donated so far!
