Originally published in 1985, “I Am Your Sister“ is a short yet insightful essay regarding the homophobia and heterosexism in Black communities and how it is used as a silencing tool to divide and further oppress Black women. This is a critical read for all feminists, anti-racists, and/or LGBTQIA advocates.

The heat wave has broke and the painters we hired to paint our home are off for the weekend. So I‘m having breakfast on my deck with the yummiest of oatmeal and another fun book by Guillory! #breakfastread #endofcabinfever #blackauthor

Cannibal | Safiya Sinclair

"The word "cannibal," the English variant of the Spanish word *canibal*, comes from the word *caribal*, a reference to the native Carib people in the West Indies, who Columbus thought ate human flesh and from whom the word "Caribbean" originated. By virtue of being *Caribbean*, all "West Indian" people are already, in a purely linguistic sense, born savage."

A stunning debut from an author to watch. This short story collection is deep. It‘s emotional. It reverberates through you in those earlier pages.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

Started this book in January and finished it today...because one must take time with poetry. And because, you know, life.

Thought this was an appropriate choice for black history month. I actually got this book at a book swap which is why the book is a little rough around the edges. I personally like knowing my book belonged to someone else. It has a different energy from newly bought books. Not sure what I‘m getting into but what books have you gotten at a book swap?

Will this be enough for the 6-9 weeks I‘ll be living out of a suitcase while my apartment is renovated?!?!?

Actually the Lethem is for the hubs.
