Noname launches book club with progressive work from writers of Colour and LGBTQ+ writers

She'll be recommending books every month

Chicago based rapper Noname is launching her very own book club.

The MC has revealed that it would “highlight progressive work from writers of Color and writers within the LGBTQ community.” The first two novels are Pedagogy of the Oppressed by the late Brazilian educator and philosopher Paulo Freire and Samantha Irby’s essay collection, We Are Never Meeting in Real Life.

Pedagogy of the Oppressed is a combination of philosophical, political, and educational theory. Freire outlines a theory of oppression and the source of liberation. We are Never Meeting in Real Life is Irby’s serio-comic essay turned into an art form.
