in preparation for my thesis, this will be my summer reading list:

the african american experience by joe william trotter
devil in a blue dress by walter mosley
up from slavery by booker t. washington
the souls of black folks by w.e.b. dubois
narrative of the life of frederick douglas
coming of age in mississippi
by anne moody

i'm reading anne's book first.

isn't it amazing that i'm nearing my late 20s and i haven't read any of these books? it's kind of sad. well, i've got to get busy ...

    That is a nice list. “The Souls of Black Folk” is one of my favorite books. We are still facing many of the problems that he wrote about back then.

    I loved “Coming of Age in Mississippi”. It gives a face to the foot soldiers of the Civil Rights Movement. It paints a picture of the hard decisions and the struggles that they went through.
