The Human Library was started in 2000 in Denmark to help break down barriers and end prejudice. The idea is simple: if you meet people from other walks of life, people different than yourself, they become real and no longer belong to a faceless group. Once people start talking and getting to know one another, it becomes harder to discriminate against others as we realize we are more similar than we are different. For more information, please go to www.humanlibrary.org .
On Wednesday November 9, at the OCC Highland Lakes Campus Student Center Arena from 10am – 2pm, our Human Library will have 25 Human Book titles. Please come and check them out.
