King Day reading list.

Home, time on your hands and no library open? This King Day reading list can be downloaded from Overdrive or streamed from Hoopla. The Half as Never Been Told by Edward Baptist is an unflinching look the the “peculiar institution”. Stony the Road by Herny Lewis Gates details the failure of reconstruction after the Civil War. Parting the Waters by Taylor Branch is a masterful history of the Civil Rights movement. The New Jim Crow by Michelle Alexander brings us up to date. Not available online but worth a look this week is The Third Reconstruction by Willian Barber.
