June 2021

Join us on June 10 at 6pm for a discussion of Shelter in a Time of Storm: How Black Colleges Fostered Generations of Leadership and Activism (University of North Carolina Press, 2019) with author Jelani M. Favors. Favors, an assistant professor of history at Clayton University, will present his book on the development and significance of historically Black colleges and universities, highlighting the ways in which they played pivotal roles during the Jim Crow era and the Civil Rights and Black Power movements. This virtual book club is free and open to the public. A live Q&A will follow a brief presentation.

July 2021

Join us on July 8 at 6pm to discuss The Legend of the Black Mecca: Politics and Class in the Making of Modern Atlanta (University of North Carolina Press, 2019) with author Maurice J. Hobson, associate professor of African American studies at Georgia State University. In his book, Hobson explores the history of black Southerners living in Atlanta in the post-World War II era, effectively interrogating the city’s long held-title of “black Mecca.” This virtual book club is free and open to the public. A live Q&A will follow a brief presentation.

August 2021

Join us on August 12 at 6pm to discuss Tina McElroy Ansa’s first novel, Baby of the Family (Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1989). Ansa, who is a novelist, filmmaker, teacher, and journalist, will present her book—a coming-of-age novel set in 1949 in rural Georgia. It chronicles the life of Lena McPherson, a black girl who is able to see and talk to ghosts. This virtual book club is free and open to the public. A live Q&A will follow a brief presentation.
