A Selection of books
A few weeks ago, I purchased a few different books that I've read or that I'm planning to read soon. I got the set of books as a birthday gift for my good friend Donald Garcia.
Those books, pictured above, include:
Marcus Rediker's Slave Ship
Ta-Nehisi Coates's The Beautiful Struggle
Sarah Lewis's The Rise: Creativity, the Gift of Failure, and the Search for Mastery
Isabel Wilkerson's The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America's Great Migration
Manning Marable's Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention
Jacob Lawrence the Migration Series -- a catalog complementing the exhibit One-Way Ticket
Mr. Garcia and I have been talking books for years, and more importantly, he has a really outstanding collection. Thus, I had to choose carefully to make sure I had books that I thought he didn't have already. Of course, I knew he would've had the Marable book; however, he and I both believe in having multiple copies of some books.
