This is going to be on NETFLIX?!?!?! Anyone know if that‘s true!!???

Also throughly devouring my 20 or so pages a day. It‘s like a history class I‘ve never been to, and I adore it! #OTHERSUNS I‘m going to be sad to end it. Which will be soon😭📖❤️.

I‘m getting a slow start to #24b4Monday. Only tracked 1:09 in tagged book but also read a little of Introvert Doodles and Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life yesterday. Hoping to finish both of those this weekend. Have some catch up to do on #OtherSuns. Already behind on my reading plan. 🤣
Diving back into the #Readathon now.

Andrew65 You can do it. Still plenty of time. Good luck. 😊👍 8mo

As an American, you have inklings of things like this and then you read them in black & white. No matter how much history you study, you will always come across new details of the atrocities.

Glad my 20 pages is done for the day. I don‘t think I could read anymore right now.

Blood boiling.

TheBookHippie Makes me vomit and it breaks my heart . I‘m also glad I‘ve decided to read this way. Atrocious. 9mo
Librarybelle It is so heartbreaking 9mo
Hooked_on_books Wow. Just wow. And the truly tragic thing is that there are people who still feel this way. They just won‘t say it so boldly in public. 9mo

These stats really put things in perspective. Even if the first two events had lasted as long as the six decades of the Great Migration, they could not have come close in comparison. And yet I recall learning about the Gold Rush in school but not this.

#OtherSuns

Hooked_on_books Wow. Those numbers are stunning. 9mo
TheBookHippie Exactly. Isn‘t it mind blowing ?!?! 9mo
megnews @TheBookHippie it is!! @Hooked_on_books they are! it goes on to say that 44,000 in Chicago was 3% of the population which would later became a third of the population, with more black people living in Chicago than Mississippi. And that at one point 10,000 people a month were arriving in Chicago! (edited) 9mo
Librarybelle That is incredible! 9mo

It took me 26 minutes to read 11 pages today but there was lots I wanted to read over again. It‘s early but I think I‘m going to enjoy this book and the writing style.

#OtherSuns

HeatherBookNerd So so good, but it does take some time to get through. 9mo

I did not know the title was inspired by a Richard Wright poem. Coincidentally I just started Eight Men by Wright today as well.

Just picked up from library and getting ready to dive in. At 538 pages, I feel the need to get a jump start on the #OtherSuns #buddyread in case I get bogged down. Hoping for 20 pages a day to stay on track.

Librarybelle Good plan! I think @TheBookHippie is also reading a certain number of pages each day. 9mo
TheBookHippie Yes!!! @Librarybelle it‘s how I‘m going to stay on track as well!!!! ❤️📖 9mo
