A series on black book culture

In recognition of reaching the 20-year mark of deliberately building a personal library, I decided to produce a series of blog entries on black book culture.

I also was interested in writing about the subject in relation to a conversation about black culture with my students. Usually, people affirm the culture through music, food, fashion, and language practices. I decided to focus on our responses and rituals related to books.
