ICYMI: Ta-Nehisi Coates’ “Voices for Justice” Virtual Event
Penguin Random House sponsored Voices for Justice, a free virtual speaker series that supports diversity, equity and inclusion work at the Cambridge Public Library. Random House author Isabel Wilkerson (The Warmth of Other Suns and Caste) and One World author Ta-Nehisi Coates (Between the World and Me and The Water Dancer) were among the featured authors. Last week, the final event in the three-part series featured a robust and motivating conversation between Mr. Coates and award-winning journalist Callie Crossley.

Over $115,000 was raised to support diversity, equity and inclusion at the Library through sponsorships and individual donations, and 4,700 people signed up to attend one or more of the three programs.
Voices for Justice funds diversity, equity and inclusion activities at the Cambridge Public Library, including public programming and workshops, professional development for Library staff, and the creation of “Little Free Libraries” filled with free books that reflect diverse authors and experiences.
