What would you like the theme for April's group read to be? The theme with the most seconds will be the one chosen for the month. Members have until Friday, March 11, 2016, to option up their selections.

This sounds good


message 4: by Michael (new)

Michael | 2 comments I have an idea for a book for Civil Rights women if it gets chosen. The Rebellious Life of Mrs. Rosa Parks by Jeanne Theoharis. I went to one of her talks and she's an intelligent person. I also believe her book won an NAACP award.

We've got a few more days til we nominate books officially, but it's looking like civil rights stories based around women will likely be our theme.

Alison Gresik (alison_gresik) | 10 comments I'll second Civil Rights era women.

Note that Jeanne Theoharis is not a writer of color.

The theme for April is the civil rights era (women/woman stories). Nominations for books to read under this topic will end on Wednesday, March 16, 2016.

Do you mean only American Civil Rigts Movement or can it be from any country who had a civil rights movement?

Cool! Thank you for helping me clarify that.

If you all are still interested in nominating books feel free to do so now.

Michael, since Cecily intended for the topic to highlight women of the Civil Rights movements since their stories are notoriously left out of that time period's history, your book is sufficient even though it's written by an author who's not a POC.
