#ReadSoulLit Recommendations

Didi of Brown Girl Reading is hosting a photo challenge for Black History Month (February here in the US) over on Instagram using #ReadSoulLit, as well as talking about this over on her channel in a series of videos and a readalong of The Last Thing You Surrender by Leonard Pitts, Jr.  You can check out this video where Didi talks about it all in more detail here.
