Our first meeting of the month will be on February 4th at 10AM.As always there are a number of events and topics involved in race in America that would be interested to discuss. A momentous event is underway, which will get a lot of attention this week and weeks to come. That is the probably nomination for a black woman to be a Supreme Court Justice, to replace Breyer on his retirement. While there is no official list of who is being considered, speculation has identified six female candidates for this nomination, they are:

, Leondra Kruger, 45, is a California Supreme Court justice.

J. Michelle Childs, 55, has served on the U.S. District Court for the District of South Carolina for more than a decade.
