ROOSE'S          BOOK CLUB

Roose transparent

An open community and curriculum
for nation-building & empowerment

by Future Leaders Bermuda

ORIGINS

..:: Roose's Book Club was created out of a desire by young Bermudians to obtain deeper knowledge of their history, and critically discuss perspectives on issues facing our community in the context of the legacies of colonialism, underdevelopment, historical inequity and injustice.

The name pays homage to Dr. Pauulu 'Roose' Kamarakafego - a Bermudian visionary, trailblazer and Pan-Africanist organizer for nation-building, empowerment and self-determination, whose reach spanned across the globe.

"I learned at a very early age that whatever knowledge I acquire from society does not belong to me. Therefore, my philosophy in life is that we should always give back to society wherever we are– be it Bermuda or some other place in the world."

— Pauulu 'Roose' Kamarakafego
