MILFORD — Organizers of Milford’s Racial Justice Book Club will host their next virtual meeting on Feb. 9 at 7 p.m. to discuss The Color of Law by Richard Rothstein.

The book club was formed to support a Milford Board of Aldermen Justice and Equality Resolution passed last summer and is intended “to rebuild alliances with those committed to justice for all and to work together to support our shared conviction that racism must end,” according to club co-chair Jolyn Walker.

“Our hope is that these will be meaningful and honest conversations about racial injustice in the small city with a big heart,” Walker said.

The Feb. 9 conversation will be moderated by Professor Yohuru Williams, university chair and professor of history and founding director of the Racial Justice Initiative at the University of St. Thomas. Williams received his Ph.D. from Howard University in 1998.

All are welcome. Registration is required by contacting Walker at milfordblmbook@yahoo.com for information.

Williams is the author of several publications, including Black Politics/White Power: Civil Rights, Black Power and Black Panthers in New Haven and Teaching Beyond the Textbook: Six Investigative Strategies. He has appeared on a variety of local and national radio and television programs including the History Channel, NPR, ABC, Fox Business News, CNN, BET, Fresh Outlook, MSNBC, Aljazeera America, CSPAN, and HuffPost Live. This will be his third meeting with the book club.
