An account of 10 black people living in 16/17th C England as glimpsed mainly through archives. The author is able to cite enough other records to show that the 10 people she's chosen weren't the only ones even if they were a very small minority. It seems obvious that once England started interacting with the wider world that the traffic would not have been all one way but it is fascinating that the author can actually point to these people.

Stamped (for Kids): Racism, Antiracism, and You | Jason Reynolds, Ibram X Kendi

At just over 2 hours, I was able to listen to this in a day. I‘d already read the YA and thought I‘d check out the kid version too. This is an excellent intro on anti racism and the history of racism in America and would be a great choice for children and parents to read or listen to and discuss together.

I haven‘t read the original, but I know this takes an already a very conversational tone geared to YA readers & makes enough changes to the language to scale it down well for MG. You do loose ALLOT of the subtler/more erudite content, but you end up with a book on anti racism written in clear language, based in historical fact, & determined to carry a hopeful tone throughout that seems like the perfect intro to this topic for many young readers

LibrarianRyan What I love about this book is they put it out in 3 version. The original, Stamped, and Stamped (for Kids). That just shows how important books like this are! It's on my list to read as well. 3w

Current audiobook. Been waiting for a copy to become available for a while.

I‘ve been listening to it while doing a jigsaw puzzle so I guess this means that I‘m well and truly on my way to turning 40 this year.

I cannot even begin to express how happy I am that I listened to the 1619 project. An extremely well-researched work that reframes the history of the United States, I learned a lot and was able to bring this research to others in my life. I also felt like this work answered questions about USA history that didn't always make sense to me. I 100% recommend that you read this book, especially when so many people in the USA don't want you to.

Having COVID really sucks, but it's giving me time to catch up on reading! Loved this book. I like the author's style, it's very conversational, even though a lot of the topics are very heavy.

On Juneteenth | Annette Gordon-Reed

A frank discussion of how the prospect/fear of shifting power dynamics were a factor to the resistance of changing racial dynamics in America. Learned a lot of new information and gained some new insights into old information. [ i took so many notes!]
