    About this event

    St. John's University School of Law invites you to The Black Authors Book Club (formerly the First Fridays Book Club), a community that brings together students, scholars, and professionals to discuss selections by Black authors and engage in conversation about the Black experience, racial justice, and the future of the diaspora.

    The Book Club is open to all who have an authentic interest in discovering and discussing the richness of Black culture, and we look forward to welcoming you to this virtual series.

    Please register for all events you would like to attend separately to receive email and calendar reminders.
