We are organizing our own Girl Scouts Troop! Girl Scouts is a national and international organization that helps girls build courage, confidence, and character. We have decided to incorporate our curriculum and mission with that of GCNWI to benefit girls in low-income schools and communities in Chicago. We will be providing mentoring, activities, and events to empower the girls we work with and help them to empower their communities. It takes a village.
We will be hosting our first Volunteer Brunch on August 30th. For an invitation, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or sign up to be a mentor.
Melanin Book Club will now be hosting our meetings at Frontline Bookstore in Hyde Park. We invite you, your friends and all Black book lovers, to join us for our first in-person dialogue and meeting in July 28th at 7pm. We will be discussing the books we’re reading this summer, our July Book Selection The Spook Who Sat By The Door by Sam Greenlee, and what’s next for The Club. We have so much in store for the our meetings and will continue to have discussions online through GoodReads.
This is a great opportunity to participate in conscious dialogue and support black businesses! Let’s engage with one another in order to grow and learn in our individual and collective journeys. We hope that you will join us for this major milestone and continue reading the works of Black writers and intellectuals.
Frontline Distribution has been a staple in the African American community of Hyde Park for over ten years. As a book store and community space that celebrates and upholds African culture, we are happy to call this place home. Join us!
