In her new book, Read Until You Understand, Farah Jasmine Griffin asks these questions. What might engagement with literature written by Black Americans teach us about the US and its quest for democracy? What might it teach us about the fullest blossoming of our own humanity?

Led by Jason Broughton (Director of the National Library Service for the Blind and Print Disabled, Library of Congress), panelists Farah Jasmine Griffin(Read until You Understand), W. Ralph Eubanks(A Place Like Mississippi), and Glory Edim (Well-Read Black Girl) will reflect on these questions and why black books matter to everyone.
