📚Bookish Thoughts 💭 “In other words, if you allow black people to be as complicated and multidimensional as white people, then it’s hard to view them as the Other with all the messy pejorative, stereotypical, and shallow ideas that have been assigned to that Otherness.” 📚 You Can’t Touch My Hair: And Other Things I Still Have to Explain by Phoebe Robinson ❔Do you read comedian memoirs? ✨ It is from my experience that they often tell the deepest stories. They know such strong emotions positive and negative and have the talent to make us laugh at tragedy. There is something remarkably admirable about a resilient individual able to find light in the darkest reaches of the mind. If reading this book has taught me anything it’s that we are all complicated and definitely have stories to tell about life. This title is about more then just hair and the violation of personal space. It’s one woman’s account of interracial dating, being the “Black friend”, feminism, and the struggles of being a comedian. This is hands down one of my favorites! ✨Today is the last day of the  #blackresiliencebookstatour hosted by @prettylittlebookshelf .
