Review: A Knock At Midnight (ISBN: 9781984825803)
Good News: It is important to keep reading racism in USA…and not only during #BlackHistoryMonth. This award winning attorney shares with the reader her childhood growing up in East Texas.
Her family was strong but it seems society was against them every step of the way.
Impressive to read how Brittany became the backbone of the family…helping a mother who has been incarcerated, caring for her younger sister, keeping up her grades….and eventually studying law.
Personal: This is the 5th book I’ve read about mass incarceration of Blacks in USA.
In the order of Best..to good: Blood in the Water (Heather Ann Thompson)…then The New Jim Crow (Michelle Alexander) Just Mercy (B. Stevenson) followed by Halfway Home and A Knock at Midnight. All the books are eye-openers. Yet I feel…nothing seems to change in the USA legal system.
