The Other Wes Moore: The Common Read

MCC's Common Read: Fall 2018/Spring 2019

A nonfiction work that deals with race, class, and education.

About the Common Read

The Common Read is a very popular program that is implemented all over the country within schools and communities to help enhance and support more thoughtful decision making as we make choices for our future. This program invites all readers to read and engage in one single text that explores controversial topics such as racism, ethics, and poverty. All faculty and staff, as well as our student body, are invited to join in the Common Read Program.  Instructors are also invited to take advantage of this program and to incorporate this text within course offerings for the fall and spring semesters.
