My last #vacationread as I‘m headed home today.

If America offered reparations in the form of 40 acres and a mule, but they are on the sea floor and you have to get body modifications in order to become a merman or mermaid… strange and haunting, as racism can‘t even be escaped when leaving life on land.

This is from the Black Stars stories, published by Amazon, the third of 6.

For #readafrica2022 I selected this title representing #Belgiancongo #thecongo. I have to say I spent a few chapters yelling at the book. A few chapters crying and the whole book cringing as several times it was extremely uncomfortable. Which I guess is why it‘s a controversial read. In any event this country came alive for me through her descriptions and the characters. #travelthroughbooks @BarbaraBB @Librarybelle @Texreader

Librarybelle I‘ve yet to read this one, but I‘ve heard others describe all of the emotions they get from this one. 1w
KristiAhlers @Librarybelle it was good but I wouldn‘t read it again. It was actually a draining read emotionally if you know what I mean. 1w
