During the month of July, we will be reading Have Black Lives Ever Mattered?  by Mumia Abu-Jamal and Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates.

Have Black Lives Ever Mattered?

Mumia Abu-Jamal

$15.95 $14.67

Alice Walker says: "In this brilliant, painful, factual and useful book, we see to whom our lives have not mattered: the profit-driven Euro-Americans who enslaved and worked our ancestors to death within a few years, then murdered them and bought replacements. Many of these ancestors are buried beneath Wall Street, Mumia Abu-Jamal's painstaking courage, truth-telling, and disinterest in avoiding the reality of American racial life is, as always, honorable."

Between the World and Me

Ta-Nehisi Coates

$26.00 $23.40

Toni Morrison says: "I've been wondering who might fill the intellectual void that plagued me after James Baldwin died. Clearly it is Ta-Nehisi Coates. THe language of Between the World and Me, like Coates's journey, is visceral, eloquent, and beautifully redemptive. And its examination of the hazards and hopes of black male life is as profound as it is revelatory. This is required reading."
