Derrick’s Pick:

A Taste of Power by Elaine Brown

Ten books of all-time. As a college student I romanticized the Black Panther Party and this book helped me to become a more objective and critical thinker of history, people, and the propaganda that surrounds moments.

Why you should read this book:

There is so much to learn from Elaine Brown’s indomitable spirit. Whether it’s racism, sexism, or something else, Brown’s story teaches us never to allow other people to dictate our station. Even if they are people we believe to be our natural allies.

Ramunda’s Pick:

Conversations in Black by Ed Gordon

Conversations in Black by Ed Gordon

I love that this book features a broad range of perspectives covering a variety of topics from Black Lives Matter to voting, education, and more. One of the topics that intrigues me most from this book is the discussion about social media activism versus in-person activism and how both have value in our communities. 

Why you should read this book:

It’s a great way for readers to gain an in-depth understanding on a variety of topics from an exciting cross-section of thinkers, leaders, and activists.
