72 Hour Hold
The Book we chose for the month of August is 72 Hour Hold by Bebe Moore Campbell.
Hell, being black is hard enough…. Please don’t add crazy.- Scientific American
A novel that tackles the stigma of mental illness in the African American community. It is about a mother struggling to find help for her 18 year old daughter suffering from bi-polar disease after learning that the mental health community can only offer a 72 Hour Hold as a solution.
Join us this month as we follow the lives of Keri and her daughter Trina, as Campbell unravels a taboo subject in our community.
