The One Read for Racial Justice is an annual, community reading program whose goals are to center BIPOC stories, create opportunities for dialogues across difference and discipline, inspire action around justice issues, and to promote community. It’s like a giant book club where we all get together to read a common text and then discuss it as a community and plan other events that help deepen our appreciation of the book and its themes. The One Read is an initiative led by the library in collaboration with a diverse group of students, faculty, staff, and alumni across departments and disciplines.

"One feels the otif of the American Dream throughout this book. not as the universal truth it is usually painted as, but as a trope that some of the authors would very much like to undo to get at a more personal truth closer to their own experience."—Thi Bui, author of The Best We Could Do
