Are you looking for a book to further your understanding of the experiences of African Americans and the reality of systemic racism in the United States?
RJA has developed an annotated book list just for you. We have selected books based on recommendations, and we have been reading them. To make it easier to find a book, we have divided the list into 5 sections: (1) General, (2) Black Justice (including incarceration), (3) Personal Accounts, (4) Housing (just one book, so far) and (5) Fiction. While all the nonfiction books are recent (this century), the novels range in date from 1937 to today, and include some classics and some new authors.
It is a sampling, a start.
In the upcoming months, we hope that parishioners will write tiny reviews of books they have especially liked.
