Black Like Us: Virtual Book Club with NAAM
Black Like Us is a virtual literary experience that allows NAAM’s community to connect through the works and writings of published Black authors and literary luminaries. NAAM will share titles for adults focused on personal narratives with the intent to catalyze a reimagined idea of oral traditions. We will culminate our reflections on the title through a facilitated discussion hosted each month on the video conferencing platform, Zoom.

SYNOPSIS: America is a place of chaos, where violence rules and only the rich and powerful are safe. Lauren Olamina, a young woman with the extraordinary power to feel the pain of others as her own, records everything she sees of this broken world in her journal.
Then, one terrible night, everything alters beyond recognition, and Lauren must make her voice heard for the sake of those she loves. Soon, her vision becomes reality and her dreams of a better way to live gain the power to change humanity forever.
