Book Discussion: Driving While Black with Dr. Gretchen Sorin

Author Dr. Gretchen Sorin will join Piscatawy Public Library for an online book discussion of their work Driving While Black. Use your library card to download your copy of the audiobook at hoopladigital.com or using the hoopla app.

Driving While Black is an account of the relationship between the automobile and the African American experience during the Jim Crow Era and beyond in the United States. Sorin's groundbreaking work, currently being adapted by Ric Burns and Steeplechase Films for PBS, examines how access to car travel created safe ways for black families to exercise the quintessential American right to move, unobstructed, through the country--previously restricted to whites only.

Commemorate Juneteenth by joining us for a discussion of this history and its greater relevance in light of recent events.
