    Happy New Year Family
    Our book for January 2004
    is Coldest Winter Ever by Sister Souljah

    Editor Review
    From Publishers Weekly
    Hip-hop star, political activist and now writer, Sister Souljah exhibits a raw and true voice (though her prose is rough and unsophisticated) in this cautionary tale protesting drugs and violence among young African-Americans in the inner city.

    When: Thursday January 8th @ 8:00 PM Eastern Time
    in the online Class Chat Room
    Looking Forward to seeing you all there
    Happy New Year

    Thank you for posting this Sister Blue ... i'm looking forward to the relaxing time we have in Book Chat, listening to the soothing voices of our Family Members reading!

    Sister Blue, i have set up a little bit more of an automated system to announce our Book Chats and i was wondering if we've already picked a book for February? I don't remember. If we have, let me know the title / author and i'll add it to the Book Club Event Schedule. You can just post it in this thread Sister at your convenience, if we have.

    Much Love and Peace.

    :heart:

    HI Sister Destee
    THE SOULS OF BLACK FOLK... by::: W.E.B DuBois
    is the name of the book for Feb 2004
    Book Description
    When first published in 1903, W.E.B. Du Bois’s The Souls of Black Folk struck like a thunderclap, quickly establishing itself as a work that wholly redefined the history of the black experience in America, introducing the now famous “problem of the color line.” In decades since, its stature has only grown, and today it ranks as one of the most influential and resonant works in the history of American thought.

    This centennial edition contains a landmark Introduction by historian David Levering Lewis that brilliantly demonstrates how The Souls of Black Folk remains indispensable not only to an understanding of the history of race and democracy in America but to considerations of the future of racial and cultural comity in the twenty-first century.

    Peace
    Blue:heart:
