I have decided to do something a little bit different this month and start a bookclub. I decided to do this after reading this really good article on Teen Vogue about how white people can hold other white people accountable for racism. So as a consequence, I am going to spend more of my time reading things that I don’t normally read. I thought that I would invite you to do the same. These are the books that I am currently reading and or have on my electronic shelf as books that I want to read. They are all very different than the usual academic reading that I have to do. They are also all written by women of colour and or queer women. This is what I am currently reading:
- What Would Virginia Woolf Do?: And Other Questions I Ask Myself as I Attempt to Age Without Apology – Nina Lorez Collins
- A Tale for the Time Being – Ruth Ozeki
- Race for Profit: How Banks and the Real Estate Industry Undermined Black Homeownership – Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor
- Women, Race, and Class – Angela Y. Davis
- The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness –
- Naamah – Sarah Blake
Here are some other resources as well including other books, social media, podcasts, etc..
