Growing up, I always wanted to go outside and play all day during the summer months but instead my mom would say, “Go read a book!” It felt like a punishment back then but now I appreciate her for helping to develop my love for reading, which turned into a deep knowledge and appreciation for black stories and history.

To all of our bookworm 📚 #Roomies like me, check out this Summer 2018 reading list to help you stay woke, which is more important than ever these days.

#Roommates, drop the names of any other books and documentaries we need to check out too in the comments below! ✊🏾 Remember, #KnowledgeIsPower y’all!
