Wow! What a book! The focus on family and stories is such an important focus and I loved the power shown to the elders. I also loved the awfully accurate racism shown in this book-it was real and raw and awful and needs to be written.

3 thinks I loved:
1-full on emotions
2-value of grandparents
3-finding your voice and yourself

When we are silent in the face of racism, we give racism the power to continue to hurt Black people and people of color. Only by speaking up against racism can we take away that power. Our voice becomes a shield, just as our silence has always been a weapon. So I’m not going to be silent anymore. I’m going to speak up and be part of the solution, no matter how hard it might be.
