The Godless Perverts Book Club has been on hiatus for the last few months, but we’re making our return in July with a new space and new date. From now on, we’ll be meeting at our beloved Wicked Grounds, 289 8th Street in SF, on the fourth Monday of every month to talk about books, sexuality, secularism, and social justice. All orientations, genders, and kinks (or lack thereof) are welcome.
On Monday July 23, we’re discussing Eloquent Rage: A Black Feminist Discovers Her Superpower, by Brittney Cooper. Cooper is a Black feminist scholar and activist who co-founded the Crunk Feminist Collective. Eloquent Rage intertwines personal narratives and political analysis as Cooper discusses race and gender as embodied by white tears, Beyoncé, hip-hop, Judy Blume — and of course, why black women’s anger can be a valuable tool for justice.
The book is available in print, ebook, and audiobook. You can also check out this video of Brittney Cooper speaking on Why Feminism Needed Beyoncé. If you’ve ready part of the book but haven’t finished it, please don’t let that stop you from coming.
So please join us at Wicked Grounds, the kink cafe and boutique, at 289 8th Street at Folsom in San Francisco (near Civic Center BART). 7-9 pm. Admission is free: if you can’t afford cafe prices, Wicked Grounds customers have bought coffee and tea for you, just ask for your beverage to be paid “from the wall.” Wicked Grounds has beverages, light snacks, full meals, and milkshakes made of literal awesome sauce. Godless Perverts is committed to feminism, diversity, inclusivity, and social justice. We seek to create safe and welcoming environments for all non-believers and believing allies who are respectful of the mission, and are committed to taking positive action to achieve this. Hope to see you there!
