#BGBOOKCLUBPRESENTS: A SEAT AT THE TABLE WITH MUNROE BERGDORF
Black Girls Book Club is very proud to announce that in keeping with our personal mission to ensure that in 2018 we continue to live our very best lives, we are launching an exciting new series of events.
Following on from our popular #blackgirlsaremagic brunch, the BGBC parties, ‘Conversations with...’ and the Dope Discussions series - we have decided to host a number of small intimate dinners.
Affectionately called ‘A Seat at the Table’, this event will be an opportunity for us to invite a special guest of honour that we feel has inspired and helped us as we explore our Black womanhood as millennials in the city.
The guest may be someone that you all know or someone that we feel we should introduce you to. The purpose of this event is not only to highlight the achievements of our guest but also to show our adoration to the Black women who have made a difference to our lives, whether it be in the arts, media, literary or the corporate world.
With that being said we are excited to announce that we will be joined by mo and activist Munroe Bergdorf for our next instalment of #BGBCaseatatthetable
