Common Book

Each year, the Health Sciences Service Learning & Advocacy Committee selects a book that allows students from across the UW health sciences schools to explore topics of common importance. This year’s Common Book – “So you want to talk about race” is a New York Times bestseller by Seattle author Ijeoma Oluo. Here are some of the topics Oluo tackles:

  • How can I talk about affirmative action?
  • What are microagressions?
  • Why am I always being told to “check my privilege”?
  • Why are our students so angry?
  • What is the model minority myth?
  • I’ve just been called racist, what do I do now?
