Reading Challenge #5 ...another book that moved me to tears, Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson. A month or so ago, I had the pleasure of seeing my friend graduate from NYU law. The keynote address by Stevenson was electric - I had to learn more about him and his work as a social justice activist so decided to add his book to my reading list. This book made me question a lot of things about society and our flawed justice system. How can we criminalize the mentally ill, allow our biases to condemn the innocent and unfairly punish people simply because they are poor, lacking in other ways or are just different from us? One of my fave quotes was “We are all broken by something...sometimes we’re fractured by the choices we make; sometimes we’re shattered by things we would never have chosen....our brokenness is the source of our common humanity...our shared vulnerability and imperfection nurture and sustain our capacity for compassion.”

Reading Challenge #4 ...didn’t get around to posting about May’s book; mostly because I wasn’t sure what to say. This book, Barracoon by Zora Neale Hurston (one of my favorite authors), impacted me in ways that are hard to explain. In this book, Kossula, one of the last-known survivors of the Middle Passage, shares his life’s story - young adulthood in West Africa, his time as a slave, and then his life as a free man in America. His true account of the horrific practices of the Dahomey tribe and their role in kidnapping and selling other Africans was hard to read. However, I tried not to focus on the atrocities that occurred. Instead I tried to focus on Kossula’s ability to survive, his unwavering hope, and love for his people. Knowing that my ancestors likely had similar experiences, I am reminded that by nature I have all the strength I need to overcome anything. Barracoon is a quick but powerful read. I’d highly recommend.
