MLK & Black History Month Mini Reading Challenge
I would like to commemorate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and Black History month by reading some related materials.
My list includes:
Chains by Laurie Halse Anderson
I May Not Get There With You: The True Martin Luther King, Jr. by Michael Eric Dyson
Yes, I am co opting the holiday of Martin Luther and Black History month for my own nefarious ends. But that's why I'm reading this book, to help open up my eyes and see King as he was and how he would want to be remembered.
Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl by Harriet Jacobs
I may add a few more, but for now this is a good start...granted I won't be able to read all of the writings of Martin Luther King, Jr. but I hope to get a good sampling in!
This challenge is really for myself to keep me motivated and accountable and a place to ramble about my discoveries...but feel free to join in if you want to and grab the button and link back here. This will run through til the end of February! Wish me luck!
