Books and Breakfast

Explore issues and topics affecting the community, country and world through insightful books and engaging conversation


Book + Discussion

Guided by the Hands Up United Books and Breakfast Initiative, the Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center (MLKCC), the Desmond Tutu Center (DTC), and Butler University Political Sciences and Libraries have created a free Saturday morning book club devoted to reading, dialogue, and community growth around important topics. Each month a new book and theme is introduced.


The goal of the program as facilitated by the MLKCC and DTC is to cultivate a space for community members to discuss issues around race, activism, justice, racism, etc., using captivating literature as the catalyst. By exposing the community to inspiring and invigorating books, the Books and Breakfast program hopes to ignite change in our local community. It is only with understanding, acceptance, and motivation from within that change in our community can begin to occur.
