“Some people have access to the ‘American dream’ more than others” - Keisha Blain on what freedom means to her #LJDOD

It's @LibraryJournal Day of Dialog with some amazing speakers and presentations! #AlwaysLearning #ljdod Currently listening to @KeishaBlain @MichelleDuster @agordonreed and Charles Person panel on "Centering on Black Nonfiction" with moderator @sendaulas

first up: @sendaulas moderates CENTERING ON BLACK NONFICTION with @KeishaBlain (FOUR HUNDRED SOULS, @OneWorldLit) @MichelleDuster (IDA B. THE QUEEN, @OneSignalPub) @agordonreed (ON JUNETEENTH, @LiverightPub) and Charles Person (BUSES ARE A COMIN', @StMartinsPress)

FOUR HUNDRED SOULS sounds like such an interesting approach to writing history. Written by 80 Black writers from different disciplines. Each writer takes on a 5-year period. I can't wait to get my hands on it! #ljdod
