I love reading a good book but lately it’s been taking me forever to fully focus and finish one. I finally started reading, On the Come Up by Angie Thomas after finishing her first novel, The Hate You Give last year.
This is actually how I’ve been reading it. Everyone, especially while riding the train, covers their books.
At first, I thought it was a sequel to THUG but was surprised to find out that it isn’t but has the same setting. Look into reading both and watching THUG movie if you haven’t already. Although fictional, they highlight the Black Lives Matter movement and current topics in the black community.
I will finish On the Come Up by this weekend and start Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi.
It is also fiction, but touches on Ghanaian culture, slavery, and colonialism.
