The Hate U Give Book Discussion

  • Date: 08/11/2020 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM  
  • Location: online
  • CostFree

Join us for a discussion of the book, The Hate You Give by Angie Thomas. This is in partnership with the Greensboro Chamber of Commerce's One City, One Film Initiative.

Teenager Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the neighborhood where she lives and the prep school she attends. Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil, who is unarmed, at the hands of a police officer. His death becomes a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets. Cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr.

This event will be on Zoom. Contact Beth Sheffield to receive a link to the discussion.
