For this month's edition of Black Studies Book Club, we are partnering with the National Women's History Museum's Black Feminist Book Club, inspired by We Who Believe in Freedom: Black Feminist DC, an exhibition on view in the MLK Library, Floor 1.
Join us for a discussion of the book Left of Karl Marx by Carole Boyce Davies, a book about the life of Afro-Caribbean radical and intellectual Claudia Jones.
Black Feminist Book Club is a traveling book club that brings together community members to read, discuss, and take action inspired by Black feminist texts. Book clubs will be hosted at different locations around DC, from branches of the DC Public Library to other community spaces. Participants will be able to explore the selected text together, take field trips to special exhibitions and community spaces, meet local organizations that continue the work of historical Black feminists, and more.
Black Studies Book Club meets every first Saturday of the month to explore, engage, and discuss books from and relating to the Black radical tradition.
