Our Color-Brave Community reads are just one way that we are able to discuss race and difference and all its complexities in a respectful forum with the goal of identifying actionable steps that can be taken.
Since 2012, Fit Oshkosh has hosted quarterly Color-Brave Community Reads that feature books chosen by our staff.
Our “book clubs” are open to all community members. Come for the lively discussion, and stay for the camaraderie with fellow readers.
Each read features a book that the entire community is asked to read at the same time.
Each month, readers get together to take a deeper dive into the books’ content to further learning and opportunity. Trained facilitators are on hand to guide the conversation. Complimentary light refreshments are served.

"For me, the Color Brave Reads are just plain gifts. Through them, I have been introduced to the perspectives and experiences of people of color that I might otherwise not have heard. I have learned about racism in ways that have encouraged and taught me how to face and unlearn my own racism for change in my life for the good. The book discussions are Grace-filled and instructive. I can't commend these opportunities strongly enough!"
- Pastor Jan LaVake, Our Saviors Lutheran Church, Oshkosh
