6th Annual Sacramento Community Book Discussion

This event is free and open to the public.

The CCBP was initiated at UC Davis to promote dialogue and build community by encouraging diverse members of the campus and surrounding communities to read the same book and attend related events. The book project advances the Office of Campus Community Relations (OCCR) mission to improve both the campus climate and community relations, to foster diversity and to promote equity and inclusiveness. The 2017-2018 CCBP addresses the topic of the intersection of LGBTQIA (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, Asexual) and racial identities, and features Redefining Realness: My Path to Womanhood, Identity, Love & So Much More by Janet Mock.
