Books with a Soundtrack: Kamala Harris
Kamala's win as Vice President-elect made me wish I had read Nikki Grimes's biography before the election. So when it was announced, the first time, that she and Biden won, I immediately put a hold on the book at my local library. In our last library haul, I picked up and read it with Oscar. Well, I skimmed it with Oscar and then read the entire thing myself. Oscar didn't have the patience to listen to all of Nikki Grimes's beautiful words.
It only seemed appropriate that we listen to Nina Simone and it was an amazing dance party. I recommend pairing your own reading of Kamala Harris: Rooted in Justice with Nina Simone's "Black Gold."
