Literary Club

The Literary Club meets by Zoom on the first Sunday of every month with lively discussions of books by black women, including Toni Morrison, Angela Flournoy, Valerie Jarrett, and Isabel Wilkerson.

Join us on October 1, 2023 to discuss Kindred by Octavia Butler.

The novel Kindred follows the protagonist, Edana Franklin, who other characters call Dana. Dana is a 26-year-old Black woman living in California in 1976. At the opening of the novel, Dana is celebrating her birthday on June 9. She is a moderately successful writer who has just moved out of Los Angeles with her husband Kevin, a white man. Kevin and Dana's relationship is seen as progressive in 1976, as many white and Black families would have opposed their marriage, including their own. 

On the day of Dana's birthday, she is abruptly ripped from her home in California and time travels to a slave plantation in Maryland during the early 1800s. As the novel progresses, Dana continues to time travel back to the antebellum South and is forced to interact and confront her ancestors, most notably Rufus Weylin, the white son of the plantation owner. Dana realizes that Rufus is her great-great-great-grandfather, stemming from his rape of Alice Greenwood, an enslaved woman with whom Rufus is obsessed.

Christian Education at Northeastern over the years has fulfilled its mission in a variety of ways to enhance the spiritual growth of the members and of the extended community through many activities. Because we are a congregation in which African Americans predominate, our focus in all of these activities is on the ways in which African American history and culture have influenced our religious heritage.

We are currently holding many of our meetings and activities on a virtual platform or by conference call due to the pandemic. 

If you are interested in participating in any of these activities, don’t hesitate to call the church office for the most current contact information. We welcome new members--both virtually and in person!

Whether in current or past activities, Northeastern Presbyterian Church continues to support Christian Education based on African American multicultural experiences. We welcome all to join us as we prayerfully work towards our goals.
