National author and speaker Sheryll Cashin discusses her new book, Place Not Race: A New Vision of Opportunity in America.   Ms. Cashin argues that affirmative action as currently practiced does little to help disadvantaged people, and she offers a new framework for true inclusion.

Huntsville native Sheryll Cashin is Professor of Law at Georgetown University, where she teaches Administrative Law, Constitutional Law, and Race and American Law among other subjects.  She writes and speaks nationally about race relations, government and inequality in America.  Professor Cashin worked in the Clinton White House as an advisor on urban and economic policy, particularly concerning community development in inner-city neighborhoods.  She is an active member of the Poverty and Race Research Action Council (PRRAC) and Building ONE America, an emerging national network of state and regional coalitions promoting sustainable growth and social inclusion.  She is a two-time nominee for the Hurston/Wright Legacy Award for non-fiction.

Each week a different guest will explore something AWESOME with us at the library. This week, our guest is Hudson Alpha. We'll be making Trait Bracelets! What makes you unique? In this activity we will use beads to represent common human traits. Participants will build a bracelet representing their unique combination of traits and compare those bracelets with others.
