Noname Book Club is a Black-led worker cooperative connecting community members both inside and outside carceral facilities with radical books. Each month, they uplift two books written by Black, indigenous, and other people of color. Noname believes building community through political education is crucial for our liberation. Noname also believes everyone (especially racialized and colonized people) should have access to unlimited educational materials. This is why they make sure all the resources they offer are free.
Since their founding in 2019, they have created 12 book club chapters across occupied United States. In April 2021, they refocused their efforts on expanding our prison chapters and now send books to hundreds of incarcerated comrades. They understand the state is actively working to disappear members of our community. It's their job to make sure folks feel taken care of and not forgotten. They believe systems that perpetuate harm against Black people should ultimately be abolished.
In Oct 2021, No Name launched Book Club Headquarters. In this space, they do administrative work that keeps the national org going, package and ship out books to prison/jail chapters and it's also where they built their Radical Hood Library!!!
