Join the BGR! Book Club

The BGR! Book Club kicks off on April 14 with Beverly, who’ll be discussing her book “BLACK GIRLS ROCK!” Owning Our Magic, Rocking Our Truth. She’ll sit down for a virtual conversation with Kathie Duperval—a BGR! alumna, recent Cornell University graduate, and aspiring entertainment lawyer—to talk about her personal journey, the importance of representation and sharing our authentic selves, and how a simple idea can spark a movement. This will be followed by an interactive workshop that helps students put these powerful ideas into practice.

It’s the first event in a monthly book series that BGR! created, in partnership with Microsoft, to build community and promote girls’ empowerment, literacy, and leadership. Each month will feature a new thought-provoking book for the community to read and discuss, followed by a live virtual event featuring the author in conversation with a BGR! alumna. There’ll also be interactive workshops based on themes in the books that cover topics like STEM, leadership, creative writing, and business skills.
