First Friday Book Club Launches


We’re excited to announce the launch of the:

First Friday Book Club 

Led by St. John’s Law Professors Cheryl L. Wade and Sheldon A. Evans, the Book Club challenges preconceived notions and inspires newfound depth in understanding as participants discuss books by African American authors that explore some of the most impactful issues of our time, including:

  • Racial justice
  • Racial awareness
  • Social change

With unique insight into the racial caste system suffered in America and across the African Diaspora, and through their literary prowess, the authors express messages to the Black community and to those in power that seek to understand the Black experience and how to change it.
