“ Most people write me off when they see me. They do not know my story. They say I am just an African. They judge me before they get to know me. What they do not know is The pride I have in the blood that runs through my veins; The pride I have in my rich culture and the history of my people; The pride I have in my strong family ties and the deep connection to my community; The pride I have in the African music, African art, and African dance; The pride I have in my name and the meaning behind it. ...more ”
“ He moved uncomfortably. "Reading's too much trouble. Mr. Jennings said I was too stupid to learn anyway." "Who's Mr. Jennings?" "He's the schoolmaster." "Is he?" I shook my head in disgust. "He shouldn't be. Listen, do you think you're stupid?" "No." A small hesitant no. "But I read as good as Daddy does already. Why should I have to do more than that?" "You don't have to.

[close] A group where my melanated folks can come to to share book recommendations and have discussions about black literature. I feel we often see books by black authors focus on themes such as racism and oppression. Those are great and relatable reads, but what about our fantasy reads? Our action/adventure or romance-themed reads (etc)? All genres are welcome to be discussed! I'd love us all to share and talk about as diverse books as possible. Other PoC are welcome to join as well. I'd love to see multiple PoC cultures sharing books from their own writers. Non-fiction and fiction. Let's make friends! Happy reading and invite other melenated friends! :)
