Center for Women, Gender and Global Leadership sponsors Black Feminist Book Club

The Black Feminist Book Club is a student-led organization dedicated to celebrating, studying, and reading the works of Black women writers.
Black feminism takes center stage by acknowledging how their position influences Black women's experience concerning racism, sexism, classism, and other social and political identities. Through our book club discussions and programming, we strive to create a multi-dimensional approach to liberation that centers Black women students' experiences, creativity, and thoughts on campus. 

We aim to provide a space for like-minded individuals to share their love of reading and books.
