Book Club

GUMC Fall 2020 Racial Justice Book Club

Fall Book Club RSVP

This book club is open to all GU Students, Staff & Faculty & MedStar.


We are pleased to announce that our Fall Book Club is starting up in November and is co-sponsored by the Office of the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion and the Spaces & Places for Advocacy and Racial Justice Knowledge Organizing Group. Our second selected book is So You Want to Talk About Race by Ijeoma Oluo. In this New York Times bestseller, Ijeoma Oluo offers a hard-hitting but user-friendly examination of race in America. According to the National Book Review, the book is “much-needed and timely. It is more than a primer on racism. It is a comprehensive conversation guide.” This book is 272 pages. It is also currently being read by members of the Working Group for Racial Justice at MedStar.

This book club will be co-moderated by Dr. Keisha Bell, Vice Chair of Pediatrics, Inpatient Operations, Chief, MedStar Georgetown University Hospital Division of Pediatric Critical Care, Associate Professor of Pediatrics, and Director for Department of Pediatrics Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and Dean Susan Cheng, Senior Associate Dean for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion at GUSOM.

Students, staff and faculty across GUMC, GU and Medstar will also serve as small group discussion leaders. If you are interested in joining the book club please sign up here by Wednesday, October 28: Fall Book Club RSVP.
