The Inclusive Leader

Brought To You By The Children's School

Big picture

After a successful year of remarkable connections, brave conversations, and breakthroughs with our "Inclusive Leader Book Club" members, we are excited to continue the series once a month on Sundays at The Children's School.

Selections from Toni Morrison’s The Source of Self-Regard

Sunday, May 19th, 2-4pm

345 10th Street Northeast

Atlanta, GA

We will read the following selections from Toni Morrison’s The Source of Self-Regard:

  • Sarah Lawrence Commencement Address
  • The Nobel Lecture in Literature
  • Tribute to MLK, Jr.

From "The Source of Self-Regard is brimming with all the elegance of mind and style, the literary prowess and moral compass that are Toni Morrison's inimitable hallmark. It is divided into three parts: the first is introduced by a powerful prayer for the dead of 9/11; the second by a searching meditation on Martin Luther King Jr., and the last by a heart-wrenching eulogy for James Baldwin. In the writings and speeches included here, Morrison takes on contested social issues: the foreigner, female empowerment, the press, money, "black matter(s)," and human rights"

Invite friends! The club is open to everyone, even those not affiliated with TCS.

RSVPs are enabled for this event.

"Becoming" Meeting

Sunday, April 28th, 2-4pm

345 10th Street Northeast

Atlanta, GA

From "In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her—from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it—in her own words and on her own terms."

Invite friends! The club is open to everyone, even those not affiliated with TCS.
