I‘ve owned it forever but haven‘t made the dive into it. But it‘s on my TBR for next month. #reading #reproductivejustice #blackfeministreads2022

I‘m having a lot of issues with this book. As a Womanist I have a hard time with the misogyny of Malcolm X. I don‘t regret reading this at all but some of it makes me rethink all that I knew and loved about this man. #history #books

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
A fascinating history of the pun, the place it holds historically, and how it shaped cultures.
It took me longer than anticipated to finish but I'm glad I did.

It's taken me most of today to realize I have zero
motivation because it's the end of the school year,
and apparently my brain still takes that as its cue to
go into Break Mode even though I graduated high school in 2001.

So here I am, learning about opera because it's
basically the only activity that appeals at the mo. I'm
still in the 17th century, which is when opera tried to
decide what it was gonna be when it grew up.

In June I read four more books for
#ReadingAfrica2022. My map is turning orange but I need many small countries to complete the challenge, which I am really enjoying.

🔸 Benin: The Viceroy of Ouidah
🔸Angola: A General Theory of Oblivion
🔸 Eswatini: When the ground is hard
🔸 Mali: Monique and the Mango Rains
