Black Book Club Set to Hold its First Meeting

BARUCH COLLEGE–The Black Book Club is making its debut to Baruch College on March 7 as an open space for  people of color and those looking for liberation to be able to read and discuss literature.

For over a month now, sophomore Tatiana Bonner-Varchola has been spearheading the development of the BBC with help from both associate professor and former interim chair of Black and Latino Studies, Dr. Regina A. Bernard-Carreño, and president of the Black Student Union, Jaleel Thomas.

The BBC started out as a simple idea, which was to provide Baruch students with an outlet and safe space to enjoy books written by black authors that can, in Varchola’s words, “allow us to talk about our experiences in a concrete manner.”
