The past three months have flown by! Although I have been reading consistently, my book reviews fell by the wayside. Enjoy the reviews for the January through March, listed in order of my completion. If you hover over the word “Book” and the number, there is a direct link to the book page for purchase.

Book Cover for Black Women Will Save the World: The Anthem by April Ryan

Book 1. Black Women Will Save The World: An Anthem by April Ryan. The book discusses the unheralded efforts of black women. A pertinent quote from April Ryan: “Also, I have always marveled at Black women and how we work to move mountains and are never really thanked or recognized.” This quote includes her. She is a revered forerunner in journalism. She speaks and we listen. Her book discusses many of the black women who have lent the their strength, tenacity, and creativity to make the world a better place even if that means “stepping out of their place.” Read via Audible; the author read her own book, which was a bonus for me. Highly Recommended. An excellent read.
