What We Read in 2020

Books We ReadHow do we begin to challenge our own biases and prejudices? Great teachers have been using literature, history and current events to open tough conversations from time immemorial. Cone Health Foundation has long supported the work of The Greensboro Public Library’s One City, One Book to bring the community together to discuss a single book.  We hosted colleague Foundations to discuss Born A Crime by Trevor Noah and its themes of racism and immigration. 

Foundation staff are continuing their own racial equity education and are reading more deeply to understand different perspectives. Choices in 2020 included: 

Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates

Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents  by Isabel Wilkerson

How to be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi

I’m Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness by Austin Channing Brown
