Read Me Treasure Valley Lectures Tackle Racism 

For Read Me Treasure Valley 2018, Boise is facing the question of evolving race relations head-on with The Underground Railroad by bestselling author Colson Whitehead, which looks at the horrors and echoes of slavery. Read Me TV is sponsoring more than a dozen free events, including two lectures that will take a broad and narrow view of the topic, respectively. From historian Betti VanEpps-Taylor, a past adjunct professor at College of Southern Idaho, comes "Fenced In or Fenced Out? American Diversity in a Racist Century," which examines divisions in U.S. society as the "latest chapter in a long history of internal and world-wide upheavals." Then, Idaho Black History Museum Board President and Director Phillip Thompson will deliver "Idaho's Unique Racial History."
