Just finished Love by Toni Morrison now reading Glyph by Percival Everett. Both great black authors who's books never fail me.
Just finished reading "The Sky in Not the Limit" by Neil deGrasse Tyson. I liked it SO much!!! I have a stash of books in my desk drawer at work. One of them is "Love". However, instead of grabbing it I decided to grab "Moby Dick" by Herman Melville.
I really wanted to read MD after reading Cornel West's "Democracy Matters." He says Melville was antiracist, anti-imperialist and loved democracy. West also calls MD "an indictment of American imperialism" and "a call for multiracial solidarity."
And I thought it was just about a whale.
