What am I currently reading? (August 3, 2020)

I got distracted from the projects of last week, because a library hold arrived.

Darity Jr, William A., and A. Kirsten Mullen. From Here to Equality: Reparations for Black Americans in the Twenty-First Century. UNC Press Books, 2020.

They got my attention in the acknowledgements:

“To our sons — members of the fifth generation born since slavery was outlawed — and to our ancestors we have identified who were born enslaved and lived to see emancipation.”

This is one of the most profound statements of the profound damage that American Apartheid has done to all of us. I cannot even begin to imagine what it means to be a person of color. It is time for true change. I recommend this book with all my heart.

(Thank you to NYPL.)
