BPL began hosting these events at Inglenook and North Birmingham Libraries in March after the BPL Friends Foundation received the grant from the Community Foundation's Health Advised Fund. These free workshops aim to address the physical and mental effects of environmental racism on generations of women and children in Birmingham’s North Birmingham and Inglenook neighborhoods.
