What we're about

We are a community formed around the celebration and uplifting of black women. We enjoy reading, but we enjoy following that reading up with an awesome in-depth discussion and sharing of ideas and opinions (preferably over snacks and tea) *even more*. We cover it all, from dismantling the master's house with Audre Lorde to exploring Afrofuturism and black women in sci-fi/fantasy with Octavia Butler and Nnedi Okorafor to dissecting the works of Wangechi Mutu and Kara Walker, and everything in between, to the left and the right, above and below. This group is for black readers who seek and want to connect with other equally dope black readers. All ages and genders welcome.

Discussion: "The Coldest Winter Ever" by Sister Souljah

I'd been wanting to read this classic for a couple years, especially since it's popular in juvenile hall. I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts on it! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Location: TBD Purchase the Book: https://www.amazon.com/Coldest-Winter-Ever-Sister-Souljah/dp/1416521690 Book Description: "Renowned hip-hop artist, political activist, and bestselling author Sister Souljah brings the streets of New York to life in a powerful and utterly unforgettable first novel. I came busting into the world during one of New York's worst snowstorms, so my mother named me Winter. Ghetto-born, Winter is the young, wealthy daughter of a prominent Brooklyn drug-dealing family. Quick-witted, sexy, and business-minded, she knows and loves the streets like the curves of her own body. But when a cold Winter wind blows her life in a direction she doesn't want to go, her street smarts and seductive skills are put to the test of a lifetime. Unwilling to lose, this ghetto girl will do anything to stay on top."
