Black History Month book club – Feb. 23

“Not everything that is faced can be changed; but nothing can be changed until it is faced.” James Baldwin, 1962

In honor of Black History Month this year, the African American/Black Association (AABA) and Women’s Initiative (WI) Laboratory Resource Groups will co-sponsor a book club event on Feb. 23 to discuss The Three Mothers: How the Mothers of Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, and James Baldwin Shaped a Nation.

The Three Mothers is the debut book from Anna Malaika Tubbs released in February 2021. It weaves together the histories of Alberta King, Louise Little, and Berdis Baldwin in lessons on identity, justice and motherhood. The book is available in print, digitally and via audiobook performed by the author. The Fermilab Library on the 15th floor of Wilson Hall will also have a few copies available to lend to participants soon.

This book club discussion will be lead by Laura Rogas (WI) and Martin Bentivengo (AABA) from noon – 1 p.m. on Feb. 23, and registration is now open.

Please contact Laura Rogas with any questions at
