After a much anticipated wait, I am listening to "This Will Be My Undoing" by Morgan Jerkins. She speaks upon her upbringing and how it shaped becoming and being a black feminist in white America. Fascinating and poetic, she drives societal conversation and history without missing a beat.
I am finding a rhythm with "That Kind of Mother" by Rumaan Alam. He was featured on the Barnes & Noble podcast, which intrigued me to read the book. While the language is straight forward, the story is ordinary. I have been reading books that don't grab me yet I keep working with it so I'll see how this book goes.
I felt invigorated and motivated after Abby Wambach's graduation address at Barnard College this year. Lo and behold, I found out she wrote a memoir and I immediately downloaded it. "Forward" is a honest, raw and beautiful reflection of her extraordinary triumphs and failures.
