"Book On It"

"Where is my bookmark? Which audiobook are my headphones plugged into?"

I am reading "Take You Wherever You Go" by Kenny Leon. He is a Tony Award winning director. Quotes from the cover by Angela Bassett and Denzel Washington attest to Leon's gift and presence in their lives, alone making you eager to read the book. Yet it is Leon's vivid and reflective writing about his tight knit relationships with his grandmother and mother that keeps you turning the page. 

I am listening to "No Ashes in the Fire" by Darnell L. Moore. His writing details being a Black man in America from his perspective as a Black Lives Matter activist and journalist. This book continues the niche of learning about being black from the bodies and voices who live the life every day.
