“It’s like I’m trying to climb a mountain, but I’ve got one fool trying to shove me down so I won’t be on his level, and another fool tugging at my leg, trying to pull me to the ground he refuses to leave.”
In honor of Martin Luther King day, do yourself a favor and read Dear Martin. It will open your eyes to how young discrimination and racism becomes prominent in someone’s life. Any of the reads on these shelves will help you understand and appreciate the contributions of black people in your life. Let’s make today about peace, unity and growth. Read, listen and engage.
I’m hoping to read Dear Justyce soon. Have you read either of these? What are your thoughts?
