What we're about

The Afrocentric Book Club is for all of my brothers and sisters looking to read about their heritage and gather with others to talk about it. We'll discuss books, movies, the news and participate in other activities relating to the experiences of Black people around the world.

Meetings are to be held throughout the Bay Area. Organizers live in both the South and East Bay.

If you agree to come to a book club meeting at a food establishment, you are also agreeing to purchase an item. Check the particular meeting details to see if food or drink is required. Not purchasing an item will also warrant removal from the group.

I look forward to being in your presence, sharing wisdom and growing together. Invite a friend or two. The more of us who know about our world, the better we can do to protect what we have and to strive for autonomy while living with love and empathy.

Don't identify as Black, but you are a friend, lover or ally? Wonderful. This is a group strictly for Black people. Thank you for respecting this space as a Black space.

*****Books we have read or will read: The Isis Papers: The Keys to the Colors, Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome, The New Jim Crow, Revolutionary Suicide, Between The World and Me, The Developmental Psychology of the Black Child, Yurugu, Introduction to Maat Philosophy, The Psychopathic Racial Personality and Other Essays, Selected Writings and Speeches of Marcus Garvey*****

Recapturing our history and spreading knowledge with love.
