This study group will be on-line

OLLI Study Group OLLI Study Group
OLLI Study Group
These are de-colonizing novels that address structural racism as a necessary consequence of European colonialism. Protagonists in these novels contend with the divided consciousness of people who have been systemically designated “other.” “De-colonizing” is an effort to recover their original culture, to reassert their own agency. Novels by Anita Desai, Junot Diaz, Chimimanda Adiche, Viet Thahn Nguyen, Tommy Orange, Ta-Nehisi Coates.

Instructor Sharon Quiroz will lead the study group which will meet Fridays from September 25 through December 18. Preregistration is required via the OLLI website or phone. A link to access the study group will be e-mailed to you approximately one week prior to the first session.”
