Contact: Patricia Laidig and Dave Gradwell, SocialJustice@stjohnsec.org
Join us for a discussion of How To Be An Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi. "Equal parts memoir, history, and social commentary, Ibram Kendi uses his own life journey to show us why becoming an antiracist is as essential as it is difficult. This book is honest, brave, and most of all, liberating." —James Forman, Jr., Pulitzer-Prize winning author of Locking Up Our Own. The book is available at local libraries, the Maryland Digital eLibrary Consortium, and on Amazon.com.

Acclaimed as one of the one of the leading organists and scholars of his generation — and St. John's former Assistant Director of Music — Prescott will perform works of Mendelssohn, Bach, Howells, and Demessieux. His program will also feature the music of Samuel Coleridge-Taylor (1875-1912), a Black British composer whose works gained immense popularity during his lifetime. There will even be a composition from The Beatles!
