1.6: The Smollett Verdict
Reflecting from Chicago. The entire Jussie Smollett and Osundairo brothers case is unfortunate and unnecessary all-around, but hopefully it inspires us all to reevaluate how and why we're measuring "success." What's worth it? What's not? And for context on what hate crimes can and do really look like, specifically for Black men of all couple styles in America, I read a little of Richard Wright's posthumous novel The Man Who Lived Underground, a 2021 special Library of America release.

1.1: "Passing," or your wknd and Nov. 10 sorted
I was so excited at the first impression I received for this book's film adaptation on its way. I'm an English major/major book nerd, so yes, the great Nella Larsen's Passing is a novel to define my college days. If you were a woman with melanin and not going into medicine or science as a career, you loved Passing. It was your Dynasty and Real Housewives franchise. Oh, the drama...
