“ Most people write me off when they see me. They do not know my story. They say I am just an African. They judge me before they get to know me. What they do not know is The pride I have in the blood that runs through my veins; The pride I have in my rich culture and the history of my people; The pride I have in my strong family ties and the deep connection to my community; The pride I have in the African music, African art, and African dance; The pride I have in my name and the meaning behind it. ...more ”

[close] Hello Readers! This group is open to all people who would like to group-read books that meet ONE OR MORE of the following criteria: - The book author is born in an African country - The book author lives predominantly in an African country - The book location is in an African country I would like to focus predominantly on fiction, but will share a biographical book every once in a while. The plan is to tackle one book a month. Sometimes, I like to throw caution to the wind and have two books by the same author in a month. After the end of each month, I encourage readers to engage in conversation regarding the book and leave their personal reviews, even if a one-liner :)
