COLUMBUS—Columbus Metropolitan Library (CML) is launching a new monthly conversation series, Speak Up/Speak Out. After the success of the 11-week One Book – One Community program, CML is eager to continue the critical community conversations around race, racism and social justice.
Each month, a library leader will moderate a panel featuring community leaders discussing a different book, article, movie or music selection from CML’s collection. The series will kick off Wednesday, Feb. 24 from 2-3 p.m. The virtual panel will discuss the 2016 documentary I Am Not Your Negro.
Scheduled panelists include Jevon Collins from the King Arts Complex, Chris Hamel from the Gateway Film Center, Angela Pace from WBNS-10TV and Letha Pugh from Bake Me Happy, LLC. CML’s Chief Community Engagement Officer, Donna Zuiderweg, will serve as moderator. Visit columbuslibrary.org/speak-up-speak-out to learn more.
