The LGBT Library at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center invites participation in our January Community Book Discussion featuring Black Dove: Mamá, Mi'jo, and Me by Ana Castillo. Black Dove was the 2017 finalist for the Lambda Literary Award for bisexual non-fiction and the text looks at what it means to be a single, brown, feminist parent in a world of mass incarceration, racial profiling, and police brutality. Through startling humor and love, Castillo weaves intergenerational stories traveling from Mexico City to Chicago. And in doing so, she narrates some of America's most heated political debates and urgent social injustices through the oft-neglected lens of motherhood and family. NBC News calls it an "exquisite memoir [...] full of compassion and maternal love."
Community Book Discussions at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center are facilitated by Mary Foltz, Associate Professor of English at Lehigh University.
Free copies of the book are available for the first ten to sign up. Email [email protected] to sign up.
