Each week, Sam over at Taking on a World of Words asks the following three questions: 
What are you currently reading? 
What did you recently finish reading? 
What do you think you’ll read next?

What are you currently reading?

I'm currently reading the following books/pieces for my classes: 

  • African American Literature 1850-1900: A Narrative on the Life of Frederick Douglass by Frederick Douglass and Harriet Jacobs' Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl.
  • Amiri Baraka and the Black Arts Movement: The Dead Lecturer section of The LeRoi Jones/Amiri Baraka Reader
  • Civil Rights Movement: Chapters 4-6 of Patricia Sullivan's Days of Hope
  • Women and Social Movements: journal articles 

Pleasure/Other Reads:
I'm also reading/listening to Beowulf for work...yep...after not reading it my senior semester and choosing to take a Shakespeare class so I wouldn't have to read it in undergrad, I'm finally reading the story for the first time (wish me luck) Still working through Marlon James's A Brief History of Seven Killings as well. So many things to read, so little time....

What did you recently finish reading?

I recently finished the following books/pieces for my classes: 

  • African American Literature 1850-1900: poems by James M. Whitfield and Frances Ellen Watkins Harper. 
  • Amiri Baraka and the Black Arts Movement: Black Magic section of The LeRoi Jones/Amiri Baraka Reader
  • Civil Rights Movement: Chapters 1-3 of Patricia Sullivan's Days of Hope
  • Women and Social Movements: journal articles

Pleasure/Other Reads:
I also read twenty or submissions for the lit journals that I read for.

What do you think you’ll read next?

I'll be reading the following books/pieces for my classes: 
  • African American Literature 1850-1900: poems by James M. Whitfield and Frances Ellen Watkins Harper. 
  • Amiri Baraka and the Black Arts Movement: Dutchman section of The LeRoi Jones/Amiri Baraka Reader and Blues People by LeRoi Jones
  • Civil Rights Movement: Chapters 7-9 of Patricia Sullivan's Days of Hope
  • Women and Social Movements: Women in Antebellum Reform by Lori D. Ginzberg

 Pleasure/Other Reads:
I'll also have more prose and poetry submissions to read and I'll be starting Piper Kerman's Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women's Prison as soon as I finish Beowulf. I may use my long weekend to my advantage and listen to it all over Labor Day weekend.
