The Way Forward is With a Broken Heart: Suggested Readings in the Aftermath of Mike Brown's Death

It is hard to be present in this moment when our hearts and minds are on the people of Ferguson, MO and the killing of Michael Brown. What is happening in Ferguson is not new. It is not exceptional; it is as American as apple pie, but it is still shocking, still heart-wrenching, still incompatible with the stories some tell about what the United States stands for. We are grateful for mediums like twitter and instagram that bring us the news the mainstream media isn't reporting, but as book people, we are also doing what we always do, looking to the foundation of voices and stories that help contextualize the meaning of this moment and help point the way forward. In that spirit we offer a short, and by no means comprehensive, list of books that are helping us think about what is happening in Ferguson. We don't know what will happen next. We only know that it matters deeply that we all pay attention, because, as Alice Walker says, "the way forward is with a broken heart."  

There will be a rally this Wednesday (August 20th) at 7pm in West End Park (1111 Oak St. SW, Atlanta, GA 30310) in solidarity with the people of Ferguson.  All are invited to attend. https://www.facebook.com/events/703967813016978
