I recently started reading a very powerful book by a new author. The book is entitled, "A Rhythm in My Soul". The first two chapters blew me away. It's a book of poetry, but it's not the normal thing, it's powerful. It puts the spotlight on the black community, politics, and our role in it. I just picked it up because it looked like an interesting read, but it's far more than that. I believe this is the shockwave the black community needed. It's available at all the major bookstores online, and the author's name is Marina Kelley. I'm telling you, it's definitely something a lot of people are going to be talking about. After I started into it, I had to seek out some book clubs, because this is a powerful sister, saying some powerful things! It made me look at things in a whole new light, not to mention notice more things around me.
