#MorganJenkins #ThisWillBeMyUndoing is a phenomenal read, raw and uncut- it delves into the the deep and dark moments of a young black girl trying to fit in a different skin while grappling with her #identitycrisis - a woman unraveling and remembering all the moments that bring her to the altar of her own becoming. #memoirs #blackwomanbrilliance #racism #blackwomen #blacklivesmatter #blackwriters

Jess7 #I borrowed this book from the library, but had to return it before I had a chance to read it. It sounds really good 2y
Momoniqui @Jess7 it‘s really good! I am working on finishing it, and as I teach a group of freshmen girls it‘s so interesting to see how much of what the author wrote about her experiences mirrors that of my students 😒 2y
overtheedge What a fantastic, heartbreaking and warming memoir. Honest, candid, and we'll written, this eye opening book will help us all to really consider how we, as humans, interact. This book is vital!! I hope she will continue to share her experiences and wisdom with us! 2y

#CurrentlyListening - this is due back at the library by the end of the day! Good thing it‘s only 3 and a 1/2 hours long, so I should be able to listen to the whole thing today.

#blackwriters - #riotgrams

Moonpa I‘m listing to this too - amazing - but heads up - it‘s longer than 3.5 hours! 2y
Laughterhp @Moonpa Really? The version my library had is only 3.5 hours.. 2y
Moonpa @Laughterhp Mine says that too but if you look at the table of contents - the first part is more than 3.5 hours. Thankfully I was able to renew the loan. 2y

I've clearly got a ways to go with this one, but I can already tell you that it's GREAT. A really wonderful pick, and perfect if you're looking for something nonfiction to round out your Black History Month stack. The narrative nonfiction format gives it an engaging, storytelling feel while filling in a piece of black history - the migration of black southern families during/after Jim Crow 🙌🏽 #audiobook #blackhistorymonth #blackwriters

JSW Such a good book! 2y
ElishaLovesBooks Stacking! This was a Chicago Public Library Book club pick recently. Glad to see it‘s good! 2y
lauralovesbooks1 I thought this was exceptionally good in audio. It's a long book, but the time flew by when I was listening. And I learned so, so much. 2y
minkyb Stacking! 2y
ValerieAndBooks This was so informative and not at all a dry read!! 2y
