Brown Book Club: “Coming Apart: The State of White America, 1960-2010”
Apr 15 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

The Brown Book Club will meet on Sunday, April 15 in Silver Spring, MD to discuss Charles Murray’s Coming Apart: The State of White America, 1960-2010 (nonfiction, 417 pp.  2013).  We’ll begin at 6pm with dinner, then go on to discussion.  Please RSVP by Friday, April 13 by contacting the event organizer, who will provide location information. Mention any food allergies, and bring $6 – $8 for the meal.


“In Coming Apart, Charles Murray explores the formation of American classes that are different in kind from anything we have ever known, focusing on whites as a way of driving home the fact that the trends he describes do not break along lines of race or ethnicity.

Drawing on five decades of statistics and research, Coming Apart demonstrates that a new upper class and a new lower class have diverged so far in core behaviors and values that they barely recognize their underlying American kinship–divergence that has nothing to do with income inequality and that has grown during good economic times and bad.

The top and bottom of white America increasingly live in different cultures, Murray argues, with the powerful upper class living in enclaves surrounded by their own kind, ignorant about life in mainstream America, and the lower class suffering from erosions of family and community life that strike at the heart of the pursuit of happiness. That divergence puts the success of the American project at risk.” – American Enterprise Institute

“Don’t miss this masterful take on totalitarianism. This dystopian drama could be set in the past, the future, or even the present. The protagonist, Winston Smith, must survive in a fascist society controlled by a legion of henchmen and their intimidating leader, “Big Brother”. 1984 is set in a state of perpetual war in Oceania and Eurasia where Stalin-like purges from society are a daily reality—unless you conform to the accepted modes of speech, behavior and allegiance. Discover Orwell’s twisted world of double-speak, where your thoughts are not your own. This brazen play is a forewarning metaphor for the P.C. culture of today, the draconian societies of Hitler, Stalin, and Mao, and whatever lies ahead in our near future. Be careful what you say or even think—because Big Brother is watching!


Welcome to the Brown Community in DC!

Dear DC area Brunonians,

We are excited to be stepping into the leadership of the Brown Club of DC (BCDC). It is a privilege to be able to build upon the great legacy left to us by our immediate past Co-Presidents, Melea Atkins ’10 and Sean Siperstein ’05. We look forward to their continued service to Brown and wise counsel.

This organization exists to serve your needs and we take that responsibility seriously. We are hitting the ground running, with a variety of social, networking and service events planned for July. We hope that you will make time in your busy lives to participate in the activities that interest you.

We also recognize and appreciate the loyalty and enthusiasm of Brown alums all over the DC Metro area, and we want to provide opportunities for all of you to share your talents and interests with us. Many of our best events started as suggestions from alums just like you. Please connect with us at any of these activities, or contact us directly by email or social media if you have ideas or comments that you’d like to share regarding future events and initiatives.

We look forward to a year of fellowship, learning and fun!
