To start off Black History Month, today’s book is “Queen” by Alex Haley. I selected this book, because many people remember and often reference “Roots” when mentioning Haley, but this story traces his maternal side of the family. It was one of the first books of my recollection to address the forbidden topic of mental illness.
What an amazing read!
