In honor of Black History Month--February here in the US--my friend Didi from Brown Girl Reading is hosting #ReadSoulLit. The hashtag is active all year long, so there are tons of reading recommendations floating around out on the Internets. Didi is also running an Instagram #ReadSoulLit photo challenge during February, so don't miss it!
These are the books I have in mind to read, but things change constantly. It's fun to see what the actual end result turns out to be.
Bedrock Faith by Eric Charles May - This is the readalong choice for #ReadSoulLit, so come on over and join the Goodreads group for discussion.
Women, Culture, and Politics by Angela Y. Davis - I'm reading this o
+-ne along with Aarti, Ana, and Iris. Looking forward to discussing my first book from Angela Y. Davis.
Welcome to Braggsville by T. Geronimo Johnson (#ReadMyOwnDamnBooks) - Has been on my e-reader for too long. Defintiely ready to dig in.
Like Trees, Walking by Ravi Howard (#ReadMyOwDamnBooks) - Second verse, same as the first. Another book that's been lounging on my e-reader.
Building a Movement to End the New Jim Crow by Daniel Hunter (#ReadMyOwnDamnBooks) - I found this one on sale, and while I haven't read The New Jim Crow, I'm diving right into this book on activism and organizing.
Zone One by Colson Whitehead (#ReadMyOwnDamnBooks) - Another too-long-on-the-ereader novel, and I have yet to read anything of Colson Whitehead's.
Salvage the Bones by Jesmyn Ward (#ReadMyOwnDamnBooks) - I definitely need more physical books, and this one is at the tippy top of my #ReadMyOwDamnBooks list.
I hope you'll join in for #ReadSoulLit! Only good things to come.
