Another month has flown by. Time isn’t flying because we’re having a grand time, but it is flying. I know that many of us will be glad to see the tail end of 2020, but it’s not the year that’s making things the way they are. I used to think that America was broken, but it’s working the way it was intended to. It was built to hold certain people up and to hold other people down. I will continue to educate myself, raise of the voices of people of color, and speak out when I see injustices. That means having uncomfortable conversations sometimes, but that’s the very least I can do.
Here’s what I read in June:
Matriarch: Queen Mary and the House of Windsor by Anne Edwards
So You Want to Talk About Race by Ijeoma Oluo
The Half-Life of Marie Curie by Lauren Gunderson
The Good Neighbor: The Life and Work of Fred Rogers by Maxwell King
A Burning by Megha Majumdar
Rivals! Frenemies Who Changed the World by Scott McCormick
My favorite book of the month was The Good Neighbor. I listened to it, and it was read by LeVar Burton. What an absolute treat! The most necessary book of June was So You Want to Talk About Race. I learned a lot and have been able to put those lessons into practice.
