Essence bestselling author Donna Hill brings us an emotional love story set against the powerful backdrop of the civil rights movement that gripped a nation—a story as timely as it is timeless…

💫

The year is 1963. In Harlem, the epicenter of Black culture, the fight for equality has never been stronger. The time is now. Enough is enough. Yet even within its ranks, a different kind of battle rages. Love thy neighbor? Or rise up against your oppressors?

💫

Jason Tanner has just arrived in New York to help spread the message of his mentor, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., of passive resistance, while beat poet Anita Hopkins believes the teachings of Malcolm X with all her heart: that the way to true freedom is “by any means necessary.” When Jason sees Anita perform her poetry at the iconic B-Flat lounge, he’s transfixed. And Anita has never met anyone who can match her wit for wit like this…

💫

One movement, two warring ideologies—can love be enough to unite them?

💫

Confessions in B-Flat is a celebration of the hard-won victories of those who came before us, and a stark reminder of just how far we still have to go.

Today’s book comes from one of the most underrated female authors in the literary industry @bytakerraallen.

Have you ever loved someone so much that it hurt?

I have.

Have you ever cherished the pain because you knew the kind you’d face without them would be way too unbearable?

That’s me.

To young Neeka Perry, Denny is one thing. In the streets, he’s a whole other entity.

But she was brave enough to love both sides, upside down, all around, and back again.

He provided her with all a girl could believe she dreamed of – security, desire, and most enviably, genuine love, all wrapped up in gold and diamonds.

He removed her far from the course of her ordinary college girl lifestyle and swept her into his world of whimsical madness.

For this and more, her love went beyond loyalty. She was devout… devout to him.

But is there a such thing as too much passion? Can you love someone too much?

And when you realize the person you love and the person everyone fears can also be the one everyone loves and you can one day soon fear, who will save you?

Especially when the person you need saving from, is yourself…?

Stop right there. I don’t want to be saved.

I’ve shackled myself to him with love. And I swallowed the key.

I’m in this for the long run.

I am devout.

Repost from @authorblove:

Amalia is the youngest child of Bishop and First Lady Franklin, founders of Mustard Seed COGIC. She’s the child her parents believe they got it right with. The one that’s a twenty-nine-year-old virgin, ready for the husband of their choosing.

Their choice? Musician and Director, Montrell Jameson.

They say Satan was high ranked and offering musical praise to God in heaven… maybe that’s why Montrell struggles so much with sin. Though a few red flags are given regarding his loyalty and faithfulness, Amalia trusts her parent’s guidance and agrees to marry him – until a second suitor comes along.

Street lord Kawan Latimore wants nothing to do with the church or anyone in it. He finds himself smitten with Amalia and the good girl image she portrays. When he finds out who her parents are, the love and lust building between them comes to a halt. But he soon learns his plans mean nothing when Fate is in control.

Stuck between church and the streets, Amalia finds herself in a love triangle that neither prayer nor threats of penitentiary time can get her out of.

Hailed as “powerful,” “accomplished,” and “spellbinding,” Lalita Tademy’s first novel Cane River was a New York Times bestseller and the 2001 Oprah Book Club Summer Selection. Now with her evocative, luminous style and painstaking research, she takes her family’s story even further, back to a little-chronicled, deliberately-forgotten time…and the struggle of three extraordinary generations of African-American men to forge brutal injustice and shattered promise into a limitless future for their children…

For the newly-freed black residents of Colfax, Louisiana, the beginning of Reconstruction promised them the right to vote, own property-and at last control their own lives. Tademy saw a chance to start a school for his children and neighbors. His friend Israel Smith was determined to start a community business and gain economic freedom. But in the space of a day, marauding whites would “take back” Colfax in one of the deadliest cases of racial violence in the South. In the bitter aftermath, Sam and Israel’s fight to recover and build their dreams will draw on the best they and their families have to give-and the worst they couldn’t have foreseen. Sam’s hidden resilience will make him an unexpected leader, even as it puts his conscience and life on the line. Israel finds ironic success-and the bitterest of betrayals. And their greatest challenge will be to pass on to their sons and grandsons a proud heritage never forgotten-and the strength to meet the demands of the past and future in their own unique ways. An unforgettable achievement, a history brought to vibrant life through one of the most memorable families in fiction, Red River is about fathers and sons, husbands and wives-and the hopeful, heartbreaking choices we all must make to claim the legacy that is ours.
