My Reading List
1. Lighting the Fires of Freedom: African American Women in the Civil Rights Movement by Dr. Janet Dewart Bell
"If we are not inspired by the courage, energy and determination of Janet Dewart Bell, then surely we must be numb. She and those she writes of accomplished so much, but her words also serve as an invaluable reminder of the work that still lies ahead of us."
2. In Defense of a Liberal Education by Fareed Zakaria
"Bravo Mr. Zakaria for this essential reminder of the value of an education that takes us beyond a professional skill set and makes us better citizens, neighbors and family members."
3. Night by Elie Wiesel
"While it is torturously heartrending to read of the horrors of the Holocaust, they serve as a reminder of the depths of the evils of racism, whether in the historical context or in our current everyday lives."
