About black girls gather

Black Girls Gather (A Book Club) is a new WIBCA program set to start in September 2020. It will consist of a group of young black women between 12 and 18 years old meeting every week and discussing readings done from literary works written by black authors. The activities of the club will include reading discussions, movie screenings, creative writing workshops, poetry workshops, visits from special guests and art sessions all revolving around the books studied. The purpose of this project would be to expose young girls to black literature and engage in discussions around themes such as coming of age, racism, discrimination, identity, feminism, love, family, friendship, etc. all while building a network of support, mentorship and sisterhood for girls coming from the black community in Montreal.

This project is made possible thanks to grants from :

La Fondation du Grand Montréal 

The Black Perspectives Initiative at Concordia University
