About the event
BLACK TEA: THE BOOK TASTINGS would like for you to join us for our reading of "Black On Black" by Dr. Daniel Black.
Black Tea: The Book Tastings was created to encourage everyone to read quality books written by Black authors and purchase them. The ability to be validated as a human being in a story told by a Black author is powerful.
Book Tastings are not to be confused with book clubs with food! The term is used to signify the importance to feed yourself with as much knowledge about one’s self as possible. The goal is to have everyone recognize the importance of Black authors by increasing access to books with characters that are Black.

ABOUT THE BOOK
Acclaimed novelist and scholar Daniel Black has spent a career writing into the unspoken, fleshing out, through storytelling, pain that can’t be described.
Now, in his debut essay collection, Black gives voice to the experiences of those who often find themselves on the margins. Tackling topics ranging from police brutality to the AIDS crisis to the role of HBCUs to queer representation in the black church, Black on Black celebrates the resilience, fortitude, and survival of black people in a land where their body is always on display.
As Daniel Black reminds us, while hope may be slow in coming, it always arrives, and when it does, it delivers beyond the imagination. Propulsive, intimate, and achingly relevant, Black on Black is cultural criticism at its openhearted best.
REMEMBER THERE ARE MULTIPLE DAYS FOR BOOK CLUB GROUP MEETINGS ABOUT PAGES TO BE READ BUT A SPECIAL EVENT IS ON JUN 13TH WITH DR BLACK. PLEASE REGISTER FOR EACH DAY!!
