#Riotgrams - It Was All Yellow: I couldn‘t let Coldplay get away. I was singing this song all day yesterday thanks to this prompt (spreading sunshiny joy)!☀️
& the color yellow is lovely to look at. When a prompt directs you to pull several books from your shelves, I go only for what is in the line of sight and close at hand so this is a sampling of yellow-spines books that I could gather in under thirty seconds. I‘ve only read Flavia‘s story.💛

BooknerdsLife Love this!! 🥰💛💛 6d

Too real. 😳

I saw this on the tagged author's Instagram. If you like slam poetry and social justice, keep an eye out for his work.

200 years ago, white people told black folks, “‘I suggest you pick the cotton if you don‘t like getting whipped.” Today, it‘s “comply with police orders if you don‘t want to get shot.”~DL Hughley
I enjoyed the audiobook.

A more academic styled read about historical figures who fought racism which bleeds into the present day artists, intellectuals, and politicians fighting for freedom. It was hammered home that the Black elite are expected to stand for their people while white stars are allowed to be just themselves.
