Sister Outsider: Essays and Speeches

In order to facilitate meaningful in-person exchanges and economically empower Black-owned bookstores, Noname’s Bookclub will be building partnerships with Black book retailers in major cities to distribute the club’s monthly titles.

The collaboration between Hakim’s Bookstore and Noname’s Book Club is as follows. Each month Noname’s Book Club selects two titles by POC and/or LGBTQ2IA+ authors to discuss among an online and in-person community of readers who (are learning to) love books.
