Picture above: The men of "Book Club" publicly proclaiming, among other things, their commitment to engaging in scholarly studies, to changing how students are viewed on the STLCC campus's, and to voluntarily creating associations, groups and initiatives to address the societal needs of the students at St. Louis Community College. 

  "Book Club" was started as an initiative to support the functions of the African American Male initiative by simply putting a book in the hands of African American men on campus.  Through voluntary outside reading and open discussions focused on self-empowerment, self-worth, character building, identity, and education, this book club will serve as the visual and vocal demonstration that begins to reshape the academic and social culture of our campus.
  Leading this effort are a number of supportive faculty, staff and administrators throughout campus, such as Dr. Joe Worth, Wendell Covington, Keith Ware, Brandon Davis, James Gillespie, Genesis Steel, Keith Sayles, Isador Ray, and Wesley Bell .

The "Book Club" Meetings:
When: Every Thursday 
Where: FV Cafeteria
Time: 11:30-12:30.
