A Few Updates for the Black History Month Reader

Nelson Mandela’s “Conversations with Myself” with foreword written by President Barack Obama seems like a great start to updating the BHM literature selection. “…Culled from Mandela’s letters, notebooks, taped conversations, prison diaries, calendars, and an unfinished autobiography, the material includes reminiscences of the antiapartheid movement, lessons in revolutionary theory gleaned from his guerrilla training, vignettes of prison life, seething protests to authorities, tender missives to loved ones, canny political strategizing and quiet philosophical reflections.” How can you go wrong?
