Last November, Micah member Dr. Gayle Wald led us in a fascinating discussion of Paul Beatty’s novel The Sellout. Many of those present requested another session with Professor Wald on another book. Due to the coronavirus pandemic we were forced to postpone in April but we happy to have rescheduled this discussion before the end of the year! Dr. Wald will lead us in a conversation on Friday Black by Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah.
This collection of short stories, selected for us by Dr. Wald, would seem to be an excellent follow up to The Sellout, as the author of Friday Black explores themes surrounding black identity as it relates to a range of contemporary social issues. Adjei-Brenyah has been named one of the “5 Under 35 Authors” for 2018, by the National Book Foundation.
We encourage you to mark the date and read the book in advance of this virtual gathering.
