What we're about

The purpose of this group is to bring together women (20's & 30's) interested in African and African-American culture for book clubs and dining experiences in NYC!

I'll primarily host book club events with books written by black female authors. I'll host the book clubs at different outdoors spaces and black or female owned restaurants and cafes (and occasionally other minority owned businesses or cafes). I'll also get the group together once in a while to attend cultural events, health and wellness events, art exhibits & museums that center around African, African- American, and Caribbean culture.

This group will be free of unnecessary negativity and gossip. We will use our time together to have fun, better ourselves, make connections and give back to our communities by supporting businesses in our communities (particularly black and women owned or led).

I'm looking forward to meeting everyone!

Virtual Book club: The Girl With The Louding Voice

Online event

Let's get together for another book club!

The Girl With the Louding Voice follows the life of Adunni, a fourteen-year-old Nigerian girl, who endures a series of unfortunate events in her quest to get an education. The alternative is a life of servitude, something Adunni experiences firsthand when, after escaping an arranged marriage, she lands herself in an even more precarious position in the employ of a sadistic wife and her debauched husband. Buoyed by the memory of her late mother, who wanted her daughter to buck cultural confines and find her (louding) voice, and with the help of a few unlikely allies, Adunni sets about overcoming her sorry lot. The Girl with the Louding Voice is a rousing tale of courage and pluck, and unexpectedly charming. It’s also a reminder of the power of books, especially for those of us afforded the luxury of taking reading, and learning, and dreaming for granted.

This book club will be held via zoom on Sunday March 14, 2021 from 3:30 -5:00.

For those of you that can't make it we will read Lakewood by Megan Giddens for our next book club sometime in April, so feel free to get a head start on that if you wish.
