March Nominations Begin Today

Women PictureMocha Girls Read members it’s that time to pick a new book for the month of March.  Since March is Women’s History month let’s read a book about an Inspirational Woman. (non-fiction) 

Note:  If you are nominating a book in a series then only book 1 is allowed.  And all nominations should be published in e-book and physical form.

Nominations are from 2/8/16 – 2/14/16

For selecting our book of the month Mocha Girls Read book club uses a democratic system for monthly selections. What do I need to do? In the comments section below, tell us what you want to read next (author and title) based on the monthly theme.  How many books can I nominate? Just pick 1 title off your TBR (to be read) list. Then what? We will put the list of nominated books up for everyone to vote on.  Once the voting is over, the winner will be selected as the book for month. What if there is a tie? We will put the two books to a head to head competition. The two books will be re-posted and everyone will be able to vote again but only in a 48 hour window of time. When do the nominations start and end? The nominations start today and will close on February 14, 2015 at 11:00pm.  Voting will start the next day.

    Freedoms Teacher: The Life of Septima Clark by Katherine Mellon Charron.

    In the mid-1950s, Septima Poinsette Clark (1898-1987), a former public school teacher, developed a citizenship training program that enabled thousands of African Americans to register to vote and then to link the power of the ballot to concrete strategies for individual and communal empowerment. In this vibrantly written biography, Katherine Charron demonstrates Clark’s crucial role–and the role of many black women teachers–in making education a cornerstone of the twentieth-century freedom struggle. Using Clark’s life as a lens, Charron sheds valuable new light on southern black women’s activism in national, state, and judicial politics, from the Progressive Era to the civil rights movement and beyond.
