Course Description

The online book studies are offered to anyone who has a sincere interest to deepen their knowledge and understanding of the systemic issues that plague the USA around race, class and marginalized groups and who care deeply about social justice. Each book study addresses current issues in society and allow opportunities for participants to reflect, discuss and hear multiple perspectives that can lead to greater understanding and empathy.

In Hillbilly Elegy we explore a passionate and personal analysis of a culture in crisis—that of white working-class Americans. The decline of this group, a demographic of our country that has been slowly disintegrating over forty years, has been reported on with growing frequency and alarm, but has never before been written about as searingly from the inside. J. D. Vance tells the true story of what a social, regional, and class decline feels like when you were born with it hung around your neck.
