Program Description

Event Details

Come to the Civic Center Library on Wednesday, October 4, at 5:00 p.m. to watch "The Hate U Give" (PG-13) in honor of Banned Books Week. Be sure to stay after the screening to join in conversation with special guest Dr. Bruce Hoskins to discuss: 'If we ban stories, then who will be allowed to tell yours?"

Dr. Bruce Hoskins was born and raised in Oceanside, CA and is an El Camino Wildcat to his core. He started his educational career at MiraCosta College and truly values his AA in Mathematics. However, once he transferred to the University of California, San Diego (UCSD), he found his real passion in Ethnic Studies and was willing to change majors even though he reads slowly and was not good at writing.  He has now earned a Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of Southern California with an emphasis on race and ethnic relations and multiracial identity formation. 

This event is in partnership with the North San Diego County Alumae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta. For teens and adults.
