You may have heard our youth chose a book entitled The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas to read in their youth book club. It is the fictional story of a sixteen-year-old African-American girl navigating between different cultures and who finds herself under pressure from all sides when she witnesses the shooting of her best friend by a police officer. The story was inspired by the 2009 shooting of Oscar Grant III in Oakland, CA. Some adults at CHUMC heard what the youth were doing and wanted to read this book as well. The book club will begin in July via Zoom.
