    I have the Darkest Child. Read it when I was in high school. Good book. Sad. I think ill read it again and take it.to the hospital with me just in case I get bored. With the internet I just don't read books like I used to.

    I've read dozens of those books, which shocks me! LoL.. But "New Jim Crow" was one of the best! Michelle Alexander came to my university & did a speech, book reading & signing back in February of 2012. She is a class act, & her book is astounding.

    1)Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome: America's Legacy of Enduring Injury and Healing by Dr. Joy Degruy Leary

    2) Black Ice by Lorene Cary

    3) Passing by Samaria by Sharon Ewell Foster (all her books are great!)

    4) Nowhere's a place by Bernice McFadden (all her books are great!)

    Happy reading ladies

    Im catching up too but I have to get through these Game Of Throne books before I read anything else. It's bad enough it took me a year to pick these up. No
