The the end of each month, I plan to post the things I read. If you’re interested in an article and it’s behind a paywall, let me know and I’ll get it for you. Happy reading!
How To Be An Anti-Racist by Ibram X. Kendi [completed as part of the The Literary Life 19 in 2021 reading challenge, the “Finish a book you started but didn’t finish category”] — I’m not the audience for this book, which is why I started it, but couldn’t finish. I think it’s an important book and one that everyone should read. But I disagree with certain premises based on my own research on race.
Mimi Gets a Clue by Jennifer J. Chow — This is what would be called a “cozy mystery,” a term I just learned about a few months ago. It’s very cute and completely not stressful to read.
Midnight Riot by Ben Aaronovitch — Another mystery, this time British and magical. Don’t want to give too much away but I’m excited to read the series.
Book of Delights by Ross Gay — This is lovely and sad and hopeful all at once. Ross Gay decided to write about something that delighted him every day for a year. He spoils it right away that he did not write every day, but what he shares is fantastic.
Academia Isn’t a Safe Haven for Conversations About Race and Racism — Harvard Business Review
Black Girls and Womyn Matter: Using Black Feminist Thought to Examine Violence and Erasure in Education
Black Feminist Thought and Qualitative Research in Education
A Theory of Racialized Organizations
All of these articles align with a couple of my current projects, but the last one, by Victor Ray, will likely change how to approach certain things. It’s that good!
