Book group examines racial discrimination

Jodi Picoult’s novel, "Small Great Things," focuses on racial tensions in a small hospital that flood out into the larger community. Using this book as our central theme, we will discuss the wide range of discrimination in our country today, and whether legislation, including the Civil Rights Act of 1964, has made any difference in America up to now and what the implications are for the future. Are we the same as we were?

This class is offered by Case Western Reserve University through its Siegal Lifelong Learning Center's Association of Continuing Education. Our leader/teacher/facilitator is Barbara Greenberg, an established Cleveland attorney and now a magistrate in both Bedford and Cleveland.

The class meets on Mondays, 10-11:30 a.m., from March 19 through May 7 at Bay United Methodist Church. The cost is $82 for Lifelong Learning members; $97 for non-members. For more information contact Lorraine Nelson, 216-368-5145.
