Welcome to BookTalk Sisters
BookTalk Sisters is a forum for discussing and exchanging ideas on books and book culture. We believe in the power of words to change our lives.
That is why we began BookTalk twenty-five years ago in Baltimore, Maryland. We met in small groups first in our homes and then at the Central Branch of the Enoch Pratt Free Library. Believing now more than ever in the value of public discussion, we have launched BookTalk Sisters in New Haven to continue the ongoing conversations about issues that matter to us and our community.
Social Justice CALL
An Intergenerational Reading
& Study Group
We engage in Collective Study for Self-empowerment and Self-determinationJoin Social Justice CALL, an Intergenerational Study Group invested in Citizenship, Activism, Law and Literacy, for a three-session series discussing some of the books and other resources that reflect our history and that matter today. In the July w018 series, we will read The U.S. Constitution, the Movement for Black Lives Platform, excerpts from Ida B. Wells-Barnett's Crusade for Justice, Charleston Syllabus, The New Jim Crow and view Ava DuVernay's "13th."
In an age of alternative facts, we say, "Education is Activism."
