Chelleo How cool is that? I‘m going to have to check out the book. 9mo
Chrissyreadit @Chelleo how far away are you from Harper‘s Ferry? I think you would be interested in the #blackhistory programs. The candy shop is there and the author is often there too. (It‘s her shop) 9mo

@Chelleo I finally remembered to post a closeup of the card that explains how each candy is significant. Here‘s part 1. #bhm #blitsyhistorymonth #blitsyswap #historiccandy @Chrissyreadit

Chelleo That‘s for sharing this. I had no idea! What a great swap item! 9mo
MolliesaurusRex @Chelleo right?! It‘s so interesting - things you don‘t really think about until they‘re presented to you. I love it! 9mo
Chrissyreadit So glad you like it! 9mo

If We Must Die | Junius Edwards

We finished off #bhm by reading Liars Don't Qualify by Junius Edwards as part of #litereads

This dialogue heavy story is a smooth read that illustrates perfectly how it doesn't matter what you do for a living or how hard you try to please and comply, there is no way to give racists what they want while still getting what YOU want.

Let us know your thoughts. You can read our full review in the link below.

OMG I am obsessed with this box of goodies! I love all of the things from Harper‘s Ferry & the Storer College flag, pin, & book!😍 also so excited to try these candies. (BTW I am kicking myself for not thinking of going to local historical sites- Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass both lived in this area) THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU❤️❤️❤️ #bhm #blackhistorymonth #blitsyswap #litsylove #swaplove

Chelleo @Chrissyreadit did great! Good idea on shopping historical sites...this swap called for some out of the box thinking. Happy #BlitsyHistoryMonth!! 10mo
MolliesaurusRex @Chelleo right?! @Chrissyreadit totally crushed this one👌🏼😍 10mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Great haul 📖💖 10mo
Chrissyreadit I‘m so glad you liked everything! I was so incredibly excited to learn about the Niagara Movement and Storer College last year that it seemed a great way to share less known but important #blackhistory I love the candy shop with historical candies. I think the candy adds some context and interest too. 😘😘😘 10mo
MolliesaurusRex @Chrissyreadit it‘s so awesome. The candy is an especially great addition - I feel like people rarely think of the foods people used to eat in history. It‘s usually about clothes, actions, vocabulary, etc. so I‘m SUPER excited to try the candies🍬😊😊😊 10mo

@Endowarrior21 you put together such a thoughtful package of goodies! I had just enough batting (usually reserved for teddy bear emergencies) to stuff the pillow for the pic. My 5yo and I just read through each of the bookmarks! And the jewelry is such a great touch. I may actually get my husband to read something other than his how-to stuff with the BlacKkklansman. Not pictured are a wonderful set of quotes. Thank you! 😍🤩

Endowarrior21 Your welcome 10mo
sammisho Please, please do this again next year!! I hate myself for missing the sign up!!! 10mo

#BlitsyHistoryMonth #BHM @ladyneverwhere thank you so much. Excited to read all these. The post card is beautiful

bullbunny The paper though! 😍 10mo
Chelleo What @bullbunny said!! 🤩😍 Happy #BlitsyHistoryMonth! 10mo
ladyneverwhere Oh good! I'm so glad you liked the package! If you end up reading who fears death I'd love to hear what you think of it. It was kind of an out there pick based on the book stalking I did, but since you had a lot of Gaiman on your TBR I thought you might like it and it's one of my favorites 😊 10mo
