Activity Recommendations 

Mabery Gelvin Botanical Garden & Buffalo Trace

recommended by Tasha Schifo

Tasha says, "The gardens are so well manicured and change with the seasons. There are cozy spots to admire the garden’s beauty. Buffalo Trace is wonderful to wander through also, because it is Illinois in its natural state. I love the tall prairie grass and the flowers that pop up throughout the Trace."

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

recommended by Janelle Couture

Janelle says, ""The Hate U Give" by Angie Thomas is an enlightening look at racism in America.  As a white person of privilege it made me uncomfortable, but it helped open my eyes to what it is like to grow up black in America."
