The Human Library Project

October 24, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

The Human Library Project

The Human Library Project, presented by the DeKalb County Public Library and the DeKalb Library Foundation, provides a safe space for readers to “check out” a “living book” and engage in conversations that explore the stereotypes and prejudices that separate us, as well as the similarities that connect us. The event provides “readers” an opportunity to explore different pillars of prejudice through open and honest conversation and interaction. With the theme “Justice in Georgia,” the human “books” will include individuals who serve as attorneys, judges, law enforcement officials, and individuals participating in the DeKalb Accountability Court program.

The Keynote Speaker is the Honorable Asha F. Jackson, the Chief Superior Court Judge of DeKalb County, and the event will also include speakers David L. Windecher, the founder of the organization Rehabilitation Enables Dreams, and John White, an exoneree of the Georgia Innocence Project.

The Human Library Project is supported with a grant from Georgia Humanities.
