I had seen the movie and was a little familiar with the authors story. It was good to read this and get more of the story and more details. The Equal Justice Initiative does amazing and much needed work. Thankful for the work they are doing.

The tagged book is one of my #bookspin drawings, but our statewide interlibrary loan system blocks new books from circulation. It will have been out a year in May, so fingers crossed I'll see it at some point.

@katcalvin I saw your Litsy call out in the conclusion and here I am to brag!

This is a fantastic book about the complications of acquiring IDs in the USA. I was aware this was an issue, but not how big an issue it actually has become since 9/11. Please, please, please read this book! Funny and informative. #socialjustice #citizenship

katcalvin Thank you!!! 1mo

This was my favorite from January. It's not something I'd have picked up on my own, but this is why I enjoy trying my hand at the different reading challenges.

Engage in social justice as you are and cast aside the "Activist Ideal". You don't need to be the person chaining yourself to trees or attending the 500k+ person marches. So much work takes place in the background that has monumental effects on change. Powerful movements have come not from violent confrontation but rather, the quiet, persistent individuals who operate in peaceful determination, carefully tending our energy to prevent burnout.

How to Be an Antiracist | Ibram X. Kendi

Pickpick

Finished the last 25% of this yesterday so the first book of #WinterGames completed! Even though I read most of it in November #SantasBookshELVES
This was a truly informative read that really helps you reevaluate your thoughts about race and breaks down racist ideas into their component parts. Kendi weaves his own story throughout and details how he is continually working to overcome his own racist ideas

An adorably illustrated picture book urging kids to stand up against racism. It was a fun read, and I love the inclusive cast of characters. #SocialJustice #AntiRacism #PictureBook

Punching the Air | Ibi Zoboi, Yusef Salaam
post image
Pickpick

#DoubleSpin
This is a heartbreaking, short novel in verse about a young artist boy sent to juvie for a fight.
Yusef Salaam is one of the famous Exonerated Five and is now a prison abolitionist, Zoboi works with him here to paint a raw and important picture of children in prison.
It is a beautiful and thoughtful novella and worth the time
4.5⭐
