Can someone give me a short list of excellent books to read?—–Alegna
Since there are perhaps thousands of books that are designed to help heal the black conscious and spread awareness, it’s hard to pick just one. Do any of you have a favourite?
Mine are :
Brainwashed: Challenging the myth of Black Inferiority by Tom Burrell. And The Psychopathic Racial Personality by Dr. Bobby Wright.
Brainwashed punched me in the gut. And made me mad as hell. My family asked me to calm down now…”you’re waking the neighbours”. But when I read and reread it, I was nodding along and totally diggin’ it. Psychopathic gave me answers as to why whites have zero empathy for our suffering and continue to perpetuate white supremacy. I have a small but great collection of books designed to help me understand the black and white framework. I read and reread them often to remind myself that I am not alone in this fight. This winter when the heavy snow falls, I’ll be curled up by the fireplace drinking tea and hopefully having a greater chance of black survival thanks to these great black minds.
Please help this young sister and list as many books as possible you feel have helped you to understand this system of oppression.
