We live, we love, we breathe. All our lives are a precious gift God gave us.
Still, we have to explain to our kids, why people think that they are in a position to decide only by the skin color who is considered the right or wrong human being.
We can’t face the idea or the stories about WWII and all that sufferance that families had to endure.
Still, racism seems to raise from our bones and our children.
In this time, where COVID is not the only pandemic, I keep asking myself how it is possible for a mother explaining RACISM to a kid, which words we have to use to describe the world where sadly, human rights are so easily violated.
But WE HAVE TO. Because kids are our best chance for a better future.
As a book reader, I’ve then started thinking about books by black authors that had a great impact on me, and several ones came to my mind. But honestly, it was not so easy, because I do not always check for the author’s photo and it happens very often that I miss the skin color.
Anyway, I’m going to share today what I think are books that make you think, and a few recommendations I have on my backlist, which are considered amazing reads and that I hope to review soon for all of you to read.
I truly hope these books will make a difference for you too because BLACK LIVES MATTER, BLACK STORIES MATTER.
And of course, I’d happy to listen to your thoughts on any of these books or if you have any favorites to share.
