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.
RSVP for our May Book Club discussion on Thursday, May 28th @ 6pm PST, hosted on ZOOM
SYNOPSIS: Two girls who grow up to become women. Two friends who become something worse than enemies. In this brilliantly imagined novel, Toni Morrison tells the story of Nel Wright and Sula Peace, who meet as children in the small town of Medallion, Ohio. Their devotion is fierce enough to withstand bullies and the burden of a dreadful secret. It endures even after Nel has grown up to be a pillar of the black community and Sula has become a pariah. But their friendship ends in an unforgivable betrayal—or does it end? Terrifying, comic, ribald and tragic, Sula is a work that overflows with life.
