Democracy in Black

I'd like to thank Eddie Glaude for taking the time to write a piece that not only speaks to the truths of being a Black person in America but also reminding us that we need to do what's necessary for change. Receiving this book at the time I did I would say correlates with the term "serendipity". I'm finally accepting that I am a Black, Queer woman and immigrant in a country that sees me as less than human and this book sparked a charge of revolution within myself that boosted my courage as well as the love I have for my people of color. It has challenged my way of thinking in so many ways; one of which is how I perceived the state/federal government and how thir actions, although may not seem connected to us, affect our daily lives as minorities. I am beyond motivated and inspired to teach my young black folks about politics and how to strategically revolutionize against what we call "American Democracy" and reimagine & re-create a new democracy where everyone is equal.


A must read? YES! 


I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review. However, reviews are my own.
