Book of the Day

In keeping with the Black History Month theme, today’s book is another classic introduced to me in the 7th grade, penned by Richard Wright.

Set in the Windy City of Chicago during the 1930’s, Bigger Thomas is on a downward spiral, as a result of poverty and crime. Then he gets a job as a driver and things begin to look up. Until, one night that involves too much alcohol consumption and a freak accident. Bigger is now faced with the reality of being a black man living in America.

This novel has been adapted in many forms, but my favorite is the one starring @diddy. Recently, @hbo has released yet another film adaptation.
