I checked the library Twitter and Facebook group.  I also looked over LinkedIn.

I looked at some grants for the census.

I did not do a whole lot today except for relax.

There is going to be a Census meeting for the Community Based Organizations tonight at 6:00 p.m.

I read some more of How to Be An Antiracist.  I am reading about the conflict between black people and black ethnics that often happens in the United States.  I also read about violence in the African American community.

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook Group this morning.  I also checked my LinkedIn.

I read some more of How to Be An Antriacist on Overdrive. I am reading about how the ideas about racism which we have today are closely tied with the slave trade from Africa.

I spent some time talking to the Complete Count Committee for the City of Mount Vernon on Zoom.  We had a meeting from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook Group this morning.  I also checked LinkedIn.

I am at work right now.  We are starting curbside assistance for items in the library.

I finished reading The US Armed Forces Officer Essays on Leadership, Command, Oath, and Service Identity by Richard M. Swain and Albert C. Pierce.  This is an excellent overview of the moral and ethical underpinnings of the United States military foces.

I read some more of How To Be An Antiracist.  I am reading about Ibram X.  Kendi's parents.
