Black History Month Book Club


Black History Month Book Club

February marks a month of celebration, reflection, and education as we honor Black History Month. To observe this significant time, we are excited to host a book club that will delve into the dynamic narratives that shape Black culture. We would be honored to have you join us as we explore Zeba Blay’s influential work, “Carefree Black Girls: A Celebration of Black Women in Popular Culture” led by our very own, Tiffany Casimere.

Book Club Details:

Date: February 20, 2024

Time: 2-3pm

Location: LRC 113

This poignant book serves as a vibrant ode to Black women’s influence in popular culture and is an apt choice for our book club this month. Zeba Blay’s essays offer rich fodder for discussion, unpacking topics that range from the representation of Black women in media to the celebration of their contributions across various spheres.

At the book club, you can look forward to:

 – Guided conversations and the opportunity to share your perspective.

– A safe and respectful environment to discuss the varied topics presented in the book.

– The chance to connect with others who are passionate about literature and the Black experience.

– Light refreshments to enjoy as we discuss.


Whether you’re already a fan of Zeba Blay or are discovering her work for the first time, we promise insightful dialogue and a chance to expand your understanding of the themes presented.


Please email by February 9,2024 to secure your spot. We will have a limited number of books available for the first 20 people who sign up! Feel free to bring a friend or a fellow book lover who would be interested in joining the conversation. If you’re more a fan of audiobooks, this title is also available as an audiobook format.


We look forward to commemorating Black History Month with you and delving into “Carefree Black Girls” together. Your voice and participation are highly anticipated as we celebrate the richness of Black culture through literature.
