For Colored Girls Book Club: Training School for Negro Girls

Join For Colored Girls Book Club for our October meeting at Irvington Vinyl and Books! We will be discussing Training School for Negro Girls by Camille Acker.
As unapologetic and resilient as the DC neighborhoods they live in, these women challenge monolithic assumptions of black identity.

A TSA agent who has never flown, a girl braving new worlds to play piano, a teacher caught up in a mayoral race. In this debut collection of stories, each of them navigate life’s “training school”—with its lessons on gentrification and respectability—while fighting to create a vibrant sense of self.
