Let’s annotate: “On White Violence, Black Survival, and Learning to Shoot,” by Kim McLarin
Plus: Please sign up for this month’s discussion by this Saturday, March 12
This month at Article Club, we’re reading “On White Violence, Black Survival, and Learning to Shoot,” by Kim McLarin. Big thanks to Corinne, Jamie, Summer, and Jennifer for already signing up for our March 27 discussion.
If you’re interested (especially if this will be your first discussion!), there’s still time to sign up (until this Saturday, March 12). Here’s more information about the article. Then click the big button below.
This week, we’re doing two things: (1) annotating the article together (2) sharing questions we’d like to talk about at our discussion.
#1: Let’s annotate
Here’s the copy of the article we can annotate together. Annotating is a great way to connect with other Article Clubbers and share your thoughts about the piece, right inside the text. You can build on others’ comments or add your own. Try it, you’ll like it! (Remember, we don’t have to perform or be fancy at AC.)
#2: Let’s share questions we’d like to talk about
After last discussion, several of you said, “It would be great if we brainstormed questions before meeting up. That way, we could see what people are interested in and also start thinking about topics and ideas before the discussion.” Let’s try it! If you have a question you’d like to explore, please share it in the comments.
Coming up this month
This week: We’ll annotate the article with fellow Article Clubbers.
Next week: We’ll listen to Prof. McLarin’s thoughts about the article.
The week of March 21: There will be a surprise.
Sunday, March 27: We’ll discuss the article with fellow Article Clubbers. Plus, I’ll raffle off a copy of one of Prof. McLarin’s books.
Are you new to Article Club? If so, welcome! We look forward to meeting you and having your voice in the conversation. Feel free to reach out with questions: firstname.lastname@example.org.
