For this first prompt, I’m throwing it back quite a bit. The first book I chose was March by John Lewis. It’s the book that taught me about the unsung heroes of the civil rights movement.
And the second one is a book I read sooo long ago. I was probably in elementary school or something but I remember loving it. I learned so much about World War II by reading Under the Blood Red Sun by Graham Salisbury.
Black is the story that your oppressors don’t want you to hear. It’s the story of what life would be like if only Black people had superpowers.
Kareem is thrust into this super powered world after being shot multiple times and running out of the ambulance. He is then found by people who train him to harness his abilities. All the while, the U.S. government is determined to find Kareem and take him down.
I was scoping through my blog a few days ago when I realized, I never posted a formal explanation of Two for Tuesday.
Two for Tuesday is something I started doing last year to post my reviews of children’s books but it can also be done with graphic novels, novellas, products, movies, and TV shows. It’s basically just condensing two short reviews into one post.
I really want to make this into a sort of blog trend. If you are a fellow blogger and would like to participate in Two for Tuesday, please let me know. When posting your Two for Tuesdays, please tag me and I’ll keep a list of participating bloggers on this post.
