Book Reviews (2 for 1): The Other Wes Moore & The Whisper of Fire

Coming to you with 2 new book reviews. With everything going on in life and the holiday season coming up, it only makes sense to consolidate these two reviews into one. If you aren’t privy to my book reviews yet, I give a brief summary about the book without providing any spoilers for anyone interested ...

Black Privilege by Charlamagne tha god

Unless you live under a rock, you have heard sound bites from a 105.1 Breakfast Club interview at some point.

Invisible Man, Got The Whole World Watching by Mychal Denzel Smith
