Second Hour @ PCCH: Adult Education and Fellowship

The Adult Education Committee is commending “Four Hundred Souls: A Community History of African America, 1619-2019” as a book to read for the upcoming program year. Edited by Ibram X. Kendi and Keisha N. Blain, this work is an anthology, written by eighty authors from different fields—novelists, historians, sociologists, political scientists, activists, lawyers, and ten poets; each takes a 5 year period for their brief chapter. The chapters are divided into ten, 40-year sections, and each section is capped by a poem.

We will explore this book in our monthly Second Hour sessions beginning in October and then in other ways across the year. Get it now and start reading—we look forward to a meaningful encounter with this significant work.
