Kayla- Nubian Book Club Testimonial

When I went to my first Nubian Book Club meeting several years ago, I automatically felt a sense of belonging. 

There were many familiar faces in the room, some of whom I knew very well. But there were also a lot of folks I had never met in my life. Nonetheless, I always felt right at home. 

The Nubian Book Club offers a much-needed space for people in the black community to come together and discuss the issues that matter to us most, but also welcomes other groups to join and learn as well in a safe, inclusive environment.  

And although the primary focus of many book clubs are to simply read novels as a group, NBC members discuss and analyze each chapter of our readings, while also relating it to real-life situations we face everyday. On top of that, group leaders encourage other members to think critically about each scenario, in order to come up with solutions to these problems to make a change for the next generation. 

But aside from the wonderful academic and social lessons taught, NBC is a great space for networking, and connecting with people in a variety of industries like music, law, journalism, entertainment and so much more. This alone can make a world of difference for a young person, with an immense amount of talent and big dreams, who only needs to be given a chance to share their gifts with the world. 

I am proud to be a member of such an inspiring, inclusive and important book club.
