Just Action Team: Fall Book Study

Sept. 21, 28 and Oct. 12 // 7pm in Room 209

This fall the Just Action Team will be leading a book study that focuses on the experiences of the “Latino” community in America. The book we will be reading is called Our Migrant Souls: A Meditation on Race and the Meanings and Myths of “Latino” by Héctor Tobar

Details to know: 

  • RSVP using the website form on the website page.
  • We will meet on Sept 21, 28 and Oct. 12. We will not be meeting on Thursday, October 5 due to Fall Break.

This would also be a great study in preparation for the Fronteras: Crossing Borders Cultural Trip being offered by McFarlin Missions. We’re working with our partners in the Rio Grande Valley to offer this trip. Click here to learn more!

More details on the book: Our Migrant Souls assembles the Pulitzer Prize winner Héctor Tobar’s personal experiences as the son of Guatemalan immigrants and the stories told to him by his Latinx students. It decodes the meaning of “Latino” as a racial and ethnic identity in the modern United States, and seeks to give voice to the angst and anger of young Latino people who have seen latinidad transformed into hateful tropes about “illegals” and have faced insults, harassment, and division based on white insecurities and economic exploitation.
