AALBC.com’s online book club, “The Coffee Will Make You Black” ran from 1998 until 2006. The book club was moderated by Thumper. The club was briefly resurrected in 2010, when both Fiction and Nonfiction titles were selected. Unfortunately, the club was discontinued the same year.

In October of 2018, novelist, educator, avid reader, and advocate for Black literature, Tony Lindsay began running AALBC’s The Coffee Will Make You Black online book club.” after a 8-year hiatus.
