Black people, like George Floyd, are routinely profiled and murdered by the police all over the world. Anything I write here is feeble in the face of that. But guess what...? It's not about me.

I feel the very least I can do, as a white booklover, is to point people in the right direction so they can experience different realities in the media they consume, not just in the tragic news they see, and develop some empathy. Here is my small contribution.
