First Meeting of the Pacifica Culture Club at Florey's!
Florey's welcomes you to our new culture discussion club!
***Wednesday, February 25th, 7:30pm***
From the host, Amanda:
Similar to a book club but so many more ways to engage! Instead of just a book assignment, there will be a topic assignment with varying options to choose from to experience. The topics will range from lighthearted, to educational to current events and the 'engagement options' will range from books, movies, events, music, poetry, articles, and more all revolving around the assigned topic. Then at meetings we will discuss the topic and how it translated across the mediums. It is not expected you do all of them!! Just one, unless you want to do more. As well it's encouraged to bring in anything relevant to the topic to share, poems, short videos, songs, articles, etc. See February's assignment for an example!
February's topic is: BLACK HISTORY MONTH
Please choose at least one of the following to engage in before the meeting!
1. FICTION BOOK: Calling Me Home By Julie Kibler
2. NON-FICTION: The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness
3. MOVIE: Selma
4. EVENT: Lecture at the Museum of African Dispora (MoAD) called #Did Black Lives Ever Matter? with Reverend Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr. 2/8 3PM
5. EVENT: sf|noir Giants of Jazz on Film 2/21 8PM
6. EVENT: sf|noir GOLDEN: A New Intersection of Music, Art and Culture, 2/7 8PM
This club is for those that love the civil discussion, that want to dive into more than just books... but all sorts of mediums to experience any number of topics! As far as February's topic goes, it is a timely and current first topic that I hope is full of potential conversation. If you plan to come please chose one or more of these options (and please feel free to recommend more on the topic!)
Drinks and light bites will be available! Feel free to bring a snack or a beverage to share!

We hope to see you!
