Are you interested in learning more about becoming a GRSC member?

The Grand Rapids Study Club began in 1901 by Domestic Workers who saw the need to join together and focus on issues affecting the community. The Club was formally organized in November, 1904 at the home of Louisa Gaines.

The purpose was to unite all efforts toward individual, home and community betterment through study and community cooperation in all things which portends the advancement of all groups. Outstanding programs include An Evening with Langston Hughes, Poems of Negro Life, National Issues Forums on Opioids, and Safety and Justice. We have read various books and enjoyed presentations by various authors.

As we prepare to celebrate our 114th Founders’ Day celebration, we invite you to become a member and help us to preserve the Legacy of the women who founded this organization.

Please be our guest at a Soul Food Lunch at the Fair Housing Center, 20 Hall Street, SE on Thursday, June 14, 2018 at 12 noon to learn more about us. Learn more about the Club objectives here.

Please RSVP to Cynthia Jones @ 616-452-8361 or Annie Edwards @ 616-248-4945.
