Urban Sun: Black Voices Book Club


The Urban SUN: Black Voices Book Club meets on the fourth Sunday of the month at 4:00 pm via Zoom.

This book club, led by Donna Mackey and Marilyn Ruffin, explores contemporary and historical works by African American authors and promotes meaningful conversations about race. Open to all adults; please register for each discussion you plan to attend. Get ready to get uncomfortable and get real!

Please note: This book group meets virtually, except for November (in person) and December (no meeting). If you would like to join us for an upcoming discussion, please register via our Event Calendar, and a Zoom link will be emailed to you.
