'Dream Town' book talk

Holmes Lounge
Ridgley Hall and Holmes Lounge, St. Louis, MO 63105

Join us for a discussion of "Dream Town," a new book by WashU alum and award-winning Washington Post journalist Laura Meckler. "Dream Town" chronicles the pursuit of integration in Shaker Heights, Ohio, which became a model for housing integration in the 1950’s and later provided a national model for school integration. Nonetheless, a stubborn racial academic gap persists today.

Reception to follow. 

This event is sponsored by Student Affairs and Cosponsored by the Center for the Study of Race, Ethnicity, & Equity.
