People’s Book Club
May 13th, 2pm – 3:30pm
2nd Floor Community Book Room @ Gallery Aferro
Please join us for our 2nd meeting at the Community Book Room at Gallery Aferro. The first book we are reading is Between The World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates.
This Group will take place one Saturday a month. This book club is for ages 15 to 115. We ask all who can make a donation for Gallery Aferro, for the use of the space. Suggested donation $5.00 but every little bit helps in supporting our art spaces.
This book club is to foster and cultivate allyship and intersectionality among all people through reading literature, non-fiction, and biographies written by and about people that have been marginalized in our society, historically and currently. We will be exploring the world through the writings by and about people of color, women, the disabled, the LGBTQ communities, immigrants, Muslims, etc. Our hope is to create a space in which we can identify our own privileges and understand how our privileges can keep us from understanding the struggle of those around us and in turn keep us from affecting any real change in our society.
