Since I don't live in America, I only follow Black Lives Matter from a distance, through news and online media. I was scared when I picked this book up, not because of the hype, because I know how much the message in this book would hit home. And it does. It speaks to me as one minority to another, as one oppressedā voice to another. I know what it feels like to have injustice thrown at your face like it's no big deal. Starr's rage, fear, and sadness become mine. But despite it all, there's a voice at the back of our head that says 'tomorrow will be better.' It will be better, it must be better.
This hope travels beyond race, beyond countries borders, beyond a hashtag.
THUG is my book recommendation of the year!
