Twelve Years a Slave (Originally published in 1853 with the sub-title: “Narrative of Solomon Northup, a citizen of New-York, kidnapped in Washington city in 1841, and rescued in 1853, from a cotton plantation near the Red River in Louisiana”) is the written work of Solomon Northup; a man who was born free, but was bound into slavery later in life.

To choose our book for September, we used a reader poll over in the community, and @SirChazR suggested we read Twelve Years a slave before the movie starring Chiwetel Ejiofor is released.

 

Schedule

We’re giving you two weeks to get your hands on the book and read the first 10 chapters. We’ll post the first discussion on Monday, September 16th, and then every Monday for the remainder of the month. We’ll announce the October selection a week or so before that one starts up.

Details

The discussions will take place over twitter on Mondays at 9PM with the hashtag #bcbookclub w/ @zellieimani

and threads on my facebook page https://www.facebook.com/ZellieImani until we get enough members to create our own group/page.

One day left to fund the I am Not My Hair Documentary. Please donate to make this project possible. It is a new documentary that will explore the topic of hair in the Black community, creating the space to discuss the importance of natural hair in expanding the narrow standards of beauty.

We hope that you also see the importance of getting stories from real women on what their hair means to them and their experiences and concerns with transitioning.

Only day left until the fundraising campaign is over. Please donate to make this project possible. Thank you to all who have donated!

"The Happy Sad," which is set to make its New York debut Aug. 16, follows the lives of four characters — a black, gay couple and a white heterosexual pair — who suddenly find their personal lives intertwined. In the meantime, each of the four characters explores their sexual identities, and find themselves questioning whether or not they are meant to be in monogamous relationships. The end result is what Hollywood Reporter critic Stephen Farber described as “a tantalizing picture of some contemporary conundrums.”

Black Panther | Ep. 2

Black Panther is a cartoon series by Marvel Animation in partnership with BET, which was blocked from being aired in the US. The creators manipulated the establishment into producing it, but only after it was financed and previewed did the establishment realize what had happened and then yanked it from airing. It is a most political savy cartoon and DVD sales have been atop the charts of comic movies since its release, making it a favorite of many. If you understand the West and its relationship to Afrika this will be one of your favs too!

Alfre Woodard, Kerry Washington, Jill Scott and Djimon Hounsou starring as Black Panther, round out an all star cast of a wonderful and valuable work of art. Watch, learn, enjoy and share.
