Brown Bag Books – Biased
Date(s) - 11/05/2019
12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The November BBB book selection is Biased by Jennifer Eberhardt (non fiction).
“You don’t have to be racist to be biased. Unconscious bias can be at work without our realizing it, and even when we genuinely wish to treat all people equally, ingrained stereotypes can infect our visual perception, attention, memory, and behavior. This has an impact on education, employment, housing, and criminal justice. In Biased with a perspective that is at once scientific, investigative, and informed by personal experience, Jennifer Eberhardt offers us insights into the dilemma and a path forward.” ( – the book jacket). She is a psychology professor at Stanford and recipient of a 2014 MacArthur ‘Genius’ Grant, who works extensively as a consultant to law enforcement. Please join us on November 5th at noon in the Fireside Room to discuss this important, timely book.
The Brown Bag Books group meets year-round, except in July and August. Many attendees bring their lunches, and everyone brings a sense of humor. Monthly sessions are always lively and enjoyable.
Books chosen by the group for discussion are usually listed in the Order of Service and the Bulletin, as well as on the UUCPA website.
