Thoughts in My Head

A Book Recommendation

I am currently reading The Warmth of Other Suns, which tells the story of the African Americans migration north in the first three quarters of the 20th century. It weaves the story of three of those migrants along with historical events. The latest historical events that I can’t get out of my mind is the story of Harry and Harriet Moore. Who were killed by the Klan when a bomb was placed under their house on the joist directly below their bed on Christmas Eve 1951. No one has ever been convicted or even tried for the bombing. Unfortunately, events like this one were not isolated, they occurred much too frequently, mostly to black men and women whose names have long been forgotten or never known to most Americans. Even though I am not through with the book I would highly recommend it.
