To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
With all going on in the USA right now (re- police profiling and killing of black people) and the resulting worldwide movement that have sprung and gained momentum, this book sheds some light that will help people have the necessary conversations around race. Evil continues because good people remain silent! Black, brown, white, red, whatever colour (shouldn’t really be saying this as we’re the human race and shouldn’t be defined by colour) , get yourselves some books on the subject.
The author states he loved John Wayne films when he was young; until, that is, he realised he was the Indians. It’s a different perspective on life & America, from a black man’s point of view. It’s a short easy read & so a great introduction to this author, as recommended to me by someone on Twitter. Recommended.
This seamless, gorgeous compilation of Baldwin's notes in preparation for Remember This House - a book, tragically, he never finished - is an essential companion to the painstaking documentary of the same name. A vital insight into an America of the past, the present and the future.
