gender

How far have we come? And how far do we still have to go to understand, and make adjustments in, how we view and speak about gender, sexuality and equality for all? With each new generation comes a greater awareness of the wide spectrum of human experience and we are tasked to incorporate new language, new perspectives and a broader acceptance of those with whom we share this world. Tune in Tuesday at 2 in the afternoon for a conversation with the Reluctant Therapist, Elizabeth Barrett and her guests Douglas Heumann and Keegan Meadows about their lives, loves and hopes for the future.

For this month's segment of The Library, Brian Reynolds speaks with Dashka Slater, the author of a new, critically-acclaimed true crime novel for young adults called “The 57 Bus.” It’s a complex and layered tale about two teens – a white girl and a black boy – whose lives intersect with painful consequences. This work sparks discussions about identity, community, and what it means to achieve justice.
