Books Change Your Mind

Books are a form of political action.

Books are knowledge.

Books are reflection.

Books change your mind.

— Toni Morrison

If we read outside our spheres of knowledge, we realize how much we all have in common, no matter our histories or skin colors — and we appreciate what makes others’ differences beautiful. And more than beautiful, MEANINGFUL.

Get out of that poor provincial town mindset and read a book by an author who doesn’t look or worship like you. And then another. Keep going. If you don’t know where to start, may I suggest Toni Morrison?

RIP, and thank you, Ms. Morrison.
