Connecting people through the power of history and culture

The Stearns History Museum is partnering with UniteCloud to launch a quarterly book club that connects history to diversity, equity, and inclusion topics that impact our community. These sessions will be led by Minnesota authors who bring a wide spectrum of voices to the table, providing context to often absent narratives in local history. Beginning in April 2021 and quarterly thereafter, the book club will meet twice to discuss each book.

The first book club discussion will feature Dr. Christopher Lehman, who will be sharing his acclaimed book, “Slavery’s Reach: Southern Slaveholders in the North Star State.”  Dr. Lehman will discuss the book itself, his research process, and will be available for questions following his discussion.

We will send out a list of reading questions to all registrants about a week before each event.

The event will begin as a virtual series on Zoom and will move to an in person gathering at the Museum once it is safe to do so.

We hope you can join us!
