You write in order to change the world ... if you alter, even by a millimeter, the way people look at reality, then you can change it.

What We Have In Common

My thoughts on “culture” came out of my never ending need to talk about what I'm reading and what it all means in the larger context. I'm also seeing that this is the best way to write my own personal history. The posts you find on this page include a look back at cultural events and my general reading philosophy.

This also keeps with the goal of Black & Bookish: TO SHOW THAT INDIVIDUALS WHO IDENTIFY AS BLACK ARE NOT A MONOLITH. 

Black people are as complex as any group of people, regardless of how we are portrayed in movies and in the media. Our diversity is masked only by the shared history of violence and racism. What I hope you see from the aspect of culture are the shared values we possess due to our torrid past.
