You are invited to participate in the Sister Outsider Reading/Discussion Group

We will read seven of the fifteen books The Root magazine identifies as black feminist texts EVERYONE should read.  The Sister Outsider reading/discussion group has 28 spaces and is open to ALL Chico State faculty, staff, and students.
The texts:
Zora Neale Hurston’s Their Eyes Were Watching God (October)
Lorraine Hansberry’s To Be Young Gifted and Black (November)
Gwendolyn Brooks’s Blacks (December)
Toni Morrison’s Sula (January)
Audre Lorde’s Sister Outsider (February)
Patricia Hill Collins’s Black Feminist Thought  (March)
Joan Morgan’s When Chickenheads Come Home to Roost (April)
Sister Outsider seeks to establish a community of student, staff, and faculty scholars engaging in academic discussions and formulating ideas about race, class, gender, sexuality, advantage/disadvantage, etc. in a welcoming and nurturing environment outside of the classroom.
All books will be provided thanks to the generosity of the Office of Faculty Affairs (FAAF), the College of Humanities and Fine Arts (HFA), the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences (BSS), the English Department (ENGL), Multicultural and Gender Studies (MCGS), the Cross Cultural Leadership Center (CCLC), and the Office of Diversity and Inclusion (DIVR).
