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.
... and a podcast on last year's event at Hopkins.
