In the Humanities Center, we want to follow up on our recent statement in support of Black Lives Matter with actions. To that end, we’re inviting you to join us in a BLM reading group. We want this to be a space that produces actions, so we’re inviting you to come prepared to help others see something that you see in the work that’s beautiful, useful, inspiring, etc. We’ll meet on Zoom at this URL: https://pitt.zoom.us/my/pitthumanities.
