The Human Library at Johns Hopkins University

Join Us Here in the Brody Learning Commons for our second Human Library at Johns Hopkins!

The Human Library began in Denmark 17 years ago in response to a hate crime. It has since grown into a worldwide phenomenon! HL works as a one-day event where instead of taking out books, "Readers" or those who attend the event, can "check out" a person who represents a group in our community that is somehow exposed to stigma, prejudice, and/or discrimination.

Have a frank discussion with a Transgender Woman, Survivor of Suicide Loss, or a Sikh person, among so many other titles that will be available for "check out" from 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, April 30. See you there!

More information on the worldwide movement that inspired this event is on the Human Library website.
