SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (WDTN) — The City of Springfield announced in July that the CultureFest was canceled due to concerns stemming from COVID-19, but Friday organizers provided an update — 2020 CultureFest is being replaced by CultureRead 2020.

The CultureFest Steering Committee is inviting community members to participate in learning about antiracism by reading a book and discussing it with one another at a later date.

Participating organizations can choose other books on antiracism based, but the books organizers selected are:

  • “How to be an Antiracist” by Ibram X. Kendi
  • “White Fragility” by Robin DiAngelo
