We are so thrilled to facilitate this communal space to share experiences and discuss the variety of topics weighing on our minds these days. The book club was born out of the Womens March #reflectandresist action. We want to build community through reflection and courageous conversations, so that we can all be empowered by, and learn from, the work of influential activists, while being mindful not the perpetuate the mistakes of the past.
Thanks to our friend Courtney Napier for facilitating this next meeting!
- For our next meeting, we will continue our discussion about feminism by reading Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's latest book: "Dear Ijeawele or A Feminist Manifesto in 15 Suggestions".
- Accompanying the book will be this interview where Adichie will be in conversation with Radhika Jones, The New York Times’s editorial director, books. "A few years ago, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie received a letter from a dear friend from childhood, asking her how to raise her baby girl as a feminist. “Dear Ijeawele” is Adichie’s letter of response. “Dear Ijeawele” goes right to the heart of sexual politics in the 21st century, and is sure to start a new and urgently needed conversation about what it really means to be a woman today" - TimesTalks
After the last meeting we decided that the privacy of a home would feel more comfortable. So thanks to Erica for hosting us next time! It's pretty safe to say she will hook it up on the drinks & snacks. Please join, bring a friend and an open mind!
