Women, Race, & Class 1

Hey hey readers, what are you reading? I have to admit, I’m kind of tech snob. Not in a Apple superfan way, but that I was wary of e-readers, and I’ve no idea what I’d do with tablet or smart speaker. But Haymarket Books (which often offers great sales) was offering Remi Kanazi’s Before the Next Bomb Drops for free, so I decided to try … Continue reading Women, Race, & Class 1

Hello readers, can you take a second to make sure if you’re prepare to read about sexual assault? Initially, I did not think I was but felt that it was important to learn about since I didn’t know about accusations. Watching a documentary is literally the least I could do if when I do get around to reading articles, that’s more graphic and overwhelming for me. … Continue reading Surviving R. Kelly Reflections

Where to Give for #GivingTuesday

Hello readers, are you finishing your leftovers? According to GivingTuesday.org, a team at the Belfer Center in New York began celebrating the day in 2012 to start a charitable mindset for the winter holiday season. Not only is the date the Tuesday after U.S. Thanksgiving, but it also follows the massively consumer-y “holidays” of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. If you happen to find yourselves … Continue reading Where to Give for #GivingTuesday

Gifts for Harry Potter Fans That Aren’t HP Merch

Wingardium leviosa readers, are you still a Potterhead? I was a hipster child and had always been reading, so when everyone and the news busted a nut about how J.K. Rowling got kids to actually read, I was like: “Hello? I’ve been reading about sharks and dinosaurs, and y’all are queueing up at midnight for some dictionary books? Nerds.” When the last movies were coming … Continue reading Gifts for Harry Potter Fans That Aren’t HP Merch
