    Here’s an uncomfortable topic: Authors should be elloquaint enough not to rely on “y’know” in their interviews. Interesting writting but her verbal diahrea reduces her credibility.

    That being said, I’m happy that her books are popular. These are important issues. Not just for those she’s speaking dirrectly to, but for all.

    I’m grateful that Angie persevered and that she had supporters who demanded nothing less. And I’m grateful that The Daily Show is prioritizing amplifying Black voices. It feels like glimmers of hope to remind you that the world keeps turning and if you want it to be better you have to do things differently than the way they’ve always been done.

    Books are so important, and especially reading as a young developing mind. Promoting reading to all different communities is absolutely a step in the right direction, to making sure that this new internet dominated world doesn’t forget where it came from, and use that to help determine where it’s going.
    Read more, everyone!! <3

    Great book. Even better knowing that the author herself is such a lovely and smart woman.
