I really enjoyed this one, if you can talk about enjoyment when you’re reading stories about race and racism. I also thought it was interesting that she showed the racism of some of the black characters, as well as some of the white ones. It certainly gave me a lot of food for thought.
This is another one of the books in the Vintage Mini Modern series that I’ve been working through, and it features selections from Song of Solomon, The Bluest Eye and Beloved, as well as a few other bits and bobs including an essay on racism in Trump’s America. That makes it more relevant than ever, even if it is a little depressing sometimes. Read it!
