Whatcom READS hosts free community events that reflect themes found in each year’s selected title. This year’s community one-read selection is “Washington Black” by Esi Edugyan.
To reflect the themes of race and belonging, Whatcom READS welcomes author, scholar, and activist Clyde Ford. In this presentation, Ford shows how the issues his father faced as the first black software engineer in America are present in high-tech today, and what concerned citizens must do to advocate for human and civil rights in the modern technological age.
