The Black Historical Fiction Decades Reading Challenge Open Discussion Group

This event will take place in person at the Morningside Heights Library.

Join the Morningside Heights Library for our Black Historical Fiction Decades Reading Challenge Open Discussion group.  This group is a reading challenge and a book club series that encourages learning about and exploring different decades of Black history throughout the twentieth century. The group meets ten times throughout the year, each meeting focusing on a specific decade. After a participant registers for the event, they receive a book list of historical fiction novels that focus on Black history for that particular decade. The participant will read any book on that list, or find their own, and bring a copy of that book ready to discuss the experience as a group. This is a safe space for those who are learning for the first time about Black perspectives, as well as a safe space for Black stories to be told and Black history to be learned. We hope that participants walk away from each meeting having learned something new.
