What we're about

We are a group of black women who love to read, want to read more, and meet like-minded women. We are here to inspire women to read, share literature, fellowship, and encourage others in the joy of reading. We meet on the first Saturday of every month. We are an eclectic group of women and so are our reading selections. Find out more on our website www.mochagirlsread.com (http://www.mochagirlsread.com/)

For Authors and Publishers, please email Mocha Girl Classy at classy@mochagirlsread.com


Aside from our monthly book club discussions, we get together for book expos, cultural events, book signings, movie outings, dinner celebrations, watch parties, and so much more.


Our club focuses on the book reader, but we do host author events.


We hail from various neighborhoods, professions, and virtually all walks of life.


If you are a woman of color in the NYC area and you love to read, then Mocha Girls Read Harlem is the place for you. Join us. We look forward to meeting up with you soon!!

Author Chat with Jill Watts about The Black Cabinet

Online event

Join Mocha Girl Alysia and Mocha Girl Classy as we chat with the author of the Black Cabinet: The Untold Story of African Americans and Politics During the Age of Roosevelt, Jill Watts. REVIEWS OF THE BOOK “A well-researched, urgent, and necessary history of black folks during the New Deal that excavates the too often ignored history of black female genius behind racial progress.”―Michael Eric Dyson, New York Times bestselling author of Jay - Z “Watts is . . . at her best when she gives a frank accounting of the barriers the Black Cabinet encountered. Again and again, its members pushed for a desperately needed reform, only to have it rejected ― or simply ignored ― by an administration much more interested in appeasing the segregationist South . . . The value of this thoughtful book [is] clear.”―New York Times Book Review ************************************************************************** This will be a webinar format. You will be able to see and hear us. We will have a Q&A section for you to type in your question or comments. They will be given to the author to respond and answer.
