This memoir is heartbreaking, inspiring, and very well written. As hard as it was to read, I couldn‘t put it down. I can only hope to be a fraction as strong as Ms. Beals one day, though it‘s a shame that any child should have had to be so strong and persevere through so much.

1. Warriors Don't Cry, Ruthless Bishop and Flowers in the Attic.
2. The last few Sookie books.
3. Today we moved furniture and did a dump run. Tomorrow, my husband will be working on his car which means I'll be reading outside while he does that. We are one of those couples that do separate activities while next to each other. 😍

The stone steps are slippery with morning drizzle as we begin the tedious climb up to the front door of Central High School.

With the death of Chadwick Boseman, today felt like a good day for a pilgrimage. Rest in power. ✊🏿✊🏾✊🏽✊🏼✊🏻 #LittleRockNine #blm #goodtrouble #blackvoices

Ugly crying now! When the cover says, “searing” and “battle”, they are right. I had no idea the level of despicable, relentless abuse these children endured EVERY SINGLE DAY, and yet they find the fortitude to press on. HEROES!

Saw the stellar Little Rock #play (with music) last night at the Sheen Center in #nyc - it was absolutely phenomenal and impactful. It tells the story of integration at Central High School and the incredible Little Rock 9. For a wonderful book about this important period of history, I highly recommend Warriors Don't Cry by Melba Pattillo Beals, one of the nine.

Melba Pattillo was one of the Little Rock Nine. This is a memoir about that time of her life and what it was like. Harrowing, heartbreaking but were you expecting less?

Warriors Don't Cry is about the Little Rock 9, the first black students to be integrated into a all white school, and it's one of those novels that will stick with you forever. Based on a true story, this book is by far one of the best books ive come across. It's so powerful. To think the world once thought and acted like that. It's heartbreaking. I highly recommend this book to all.
