Day Eleven: February 17, on Black History Month
In honor of Black History Month, I am recommending the following five texts on African American Literature:
- “Phillis Wheatley: Complete Writings” edited by Vincent Carretta
- “The Book of American Negro Poetry” by James Weldon Johnson
- “Their Eyes Were Watching God” by Zora Neale Hurston
- “Go Tell It on the Mountain” by James Baldwin
- “Beloved” by Toni Morrison
*** Every day is Black History Month.
Every day we celebrate human beings created in the image of God.
Every day we celebrate the gift of life and the gift of black life because black people and all people MATTER to God.
